This paper explores how peer review mechanisms and processes currently affect team science and how they could be designed to offer better support for team science. This immediately raises the question of how to define teams. While recognizing that this question remains open, this paper addresses the issue of the peer review of team science research in terms of the peer review of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research. Although the paper touches on other uses of peer review, for instance, in promotion and tenure decisions and in program evaluation, the main issue addressed here is the peer review of team science research in the context of the review of grant proposals.
