Australia cannot afford to compromise the principles underpinning scientific research.

@karenandrewsmp @BOConnorMP @AdamBandt @RichardMarlesMP…
The National Research and Innovation Alliance, a body of organisations representing researchers across Australia, commit to the Principle of Universality (freedom and responsibility) of Science.
Peer review is widely regarded as the scientific seal of approval, denoting quality, validity, and importance.

Researchers will not consider a scientific finding as valid unless it has been approved by the process of peer review.

Without peer-review, researchers consider any findings presented as preliminary and potentially flawed. #auspol
Those who disagree with peer-reviewed findings should participate in the scientific process and subject their findings to the same level of scrutiny and review.
Attempts to bypass peer review allow unqualified individuals and organisations to compare their often ad hoc views with findings derived from well-controlled analyses of available data and experimental investigations.
This has the potential to subject science to political interference.

The confidence of the research community, and of the taxpayer, that the public investment in the national research base is well managed, can be sustained only if an effective form of peer review holds.
The fundamental principles and processes outlined have underpinned knowledge generation for centuries and are essential to inform decision making by policy makers & by members of the broader community. Any attempt to undermine them erodes decision making in our nation. #auspol
