Peer review as the cornerstone of academic quality control has been accused of several biases. As a less subjective and biased alternative, bibliometric methods have been developed and implemented in evaluation procedures. This chapter discusses the relationship between peer review and bibliometrics, showing that bibliometrics is dependent on peer review and not free of its biases. Using three examples of interrelating peer review and bibliometrics, it concludes that rather than playing the two methods of evaluation off against each other, efforts should focus on the interplay and combination of the two.
