At present, the training scale of doctoral candidates has expanded substantially. More and more doctoral training units use blind peer review to improve the quality of PhD dissertations. The advantage of blind peer review for PhD dissertations is that it strengthens the rigorousness, but not the scientificity of review. We should combine blind and non-blind peer review, draw on other countries’ experience and introduce academic institution review. Doctoral training units should explore a more reasonable review mode, to enhance the quality of PhD dissertations and doctors.
