The internal scientific evaluation of knowledge claims done by peer review is todayhas for the last 20 years been supplemented by new methods of knowledge assessment. These methods are usually taken from other sectors such as the public administration and the corporate sector. Because of their different backgrounds compared to the peer review method, it is necessary to critically examine them in relation to assessment of quality. But this also calls for a new understanding of science and knowledge. The article starts by briefly explaining this new understanding, before going into more details on the new methods of knowledge assessment and the perspectives behind them.
