    Who is the reviewing peer here?

    Professors in Veterinary Basic Science and Diplomats in Veterinary Medicine at the Royal Veterinary College, UK primarily. Some sections have been developed by one of the Vet schools in Spain for instance.

    This can all be a fake!

    It does not have to mean that all informations are wrong, or the site-owners are cheaters. it is just (as it always should be usual for a real Professionalist) that Informations must be checked particularly by the reader.

    And even if there is a professional peer, there are many professors who make mistakes... I just have seen too many bad dissertations....

    Obviously, it is a judgement call on how individuals use information they aquire via such sources and always will be. I am a student at the Royal Veterinary College and have been involved in the project, so I know that pages are peer reviewed. However, as you suggest, professionals can still overlook things or make mistakes.

    I just think it is a useful resource and a good revision tool for veterinary students.

    It looks like and all information is useful as long as the User can verify it.

    And by the way your personal involvement is no testimonial, the sceptical User must ask "Who is Squeep"!

    You can also be a part of a fake...the same would be with me and all other Members in such a case.

    But that is not the point, it all comes down to:

    "However ... professionals can still overlook things or make mistakes. "

    and that is what all should consider generally.

    "I just think it is a useful resource and a good revision tool for veterinary students. "

    And therefore your contribution is fine, just all of us still have to find out for themselves, too, and "peer reviewed" unfortunately is no general quality-branding....and therefore I just critisize the particular statement itself.




    Just compare Wikipedia, there you can just differ between useful content and bullshit by verifying yourself and when you are able to verify or falsify then you donīt need Wikipedia as a Basis anymore...you just proved your own "content".
