The peer review department of WikiProject Engineering conducts peer review of articles on request. The primary objective is to encourage better articles by having contributors who may not have worked on articles to examine them and provide ideas for further improvement.

The peer review process is highly flexible and can deal with articles of any quality; however, requesting reviews on very short articles may not be productive, as there is little for readers to comment on.

All reviews are conducted by fellow editors—usually members of WikiProject Engineering. While there is a general intent to expand this process to allow for review by subject experts, the preparations for this are not yet complete.


Requesting a review

  1. Add peer-review=yes to the {{Engineering}} project banner at the top of the article's talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax).
  2. From there, click on the "request has been made" link that appears in the template. This will open a page to discuss the review of your article.
  3. Place === [[Name of nominated article]] === at the top.
  4. Below it, write your reason for nominating the article and sign by using four tildes (~~~~).
  5. Add {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Engineering/Peer review/Name of nominated article}} at the top of the list of requests on this page.

Responding to a request

Everyone is encouraged to comment on any request listed here. To comment on an article, please add a new section (using ==== [[User:Your name|Your name]] ====) for your comments, in order to keep multiple responses legible.


Reviews should be archived after they have been inactive for some time, or when the article is nominated as a featured article candidate. To archive a review:

  1. Replace peer-review=yes with old-peer-review=yes in the {{Engineering}} project banner template at the top of the article's talk page
  2. Move {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Engineering/Peer review/Name of nominated article}} from this page to the current archive page.

I want to see this article improved but am very close to the subject and need an outside opinion. I've rated it start-class because it seems worthy of at least that. Any suggestions are welcome. Chris857 (talk) 23:54, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

I know this PR is a bit old, but I re-evaluated it at b-class. need some more work before GA nom. Aunva6 (talk) 21:22, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
