Although faculty members agreed to its necessity they had some reservations regarding the methods used. Faculty members also expressed dissatisfaction with the promotion assessment. This paper subsequently recommended to restrict the role of the Central Committees to monitor peer-reviewed and accomplished scientific journals and based on each discipline and not to peer-review the articles once more and that’s to eliminate double standards between the peer-reviewers and reviewers of the Promotion Committee.
