PEER RESEARCHERS: View Guidelines for Preparing & Submitting Reports.

PEER has recently changed the way that we print and ship our reports.

To order b&w hard copies of 2011 PEER Reports and beyond:
PEER no longer keeps copies on hand to mail to interested parties and is now directing inquiries directly to our printer, Replica Digital Ink. Printed black and white bound versions of the report may be purchased online and will be shipped to you directly from Replica Digital Ink: Order PEER Reports from Replica Digital Ink. In the Products Tab, click on "PEER Reports." Note that there are multiple pages of PEER Reports. Reports are individually priced based on the length of the report. If you are interested in a color hard copy of any reports, contact Replica Digital Ink by email.

To order b&w hard copies of PEER Reports prior to 2011:
PEER still has black and white bound versions of many reports available for purchase. If you are interested in ordering printed PEER reports, please complete the Pre-2011 PEER Report Order Inquiry Form. A PEER staff member will contact you with information about the availability of your requested reports. When you have confirmed the order, we will send you an invoice and provide instructions for payment.
