Here again quantity does not mean quality. A large reviewing board of skilled persons from different scientific and non-scientific areas (doctors, pharmacists, nurses, working in hospital and in the community, etc.) is certainly helpful, but a team of two people including a motivated, well-trained physician and a patient with experience in critical analysis may already be effective. Large review boards require management skills and a lot of follow up. Some types of articles and some uncontroversial topics require fewer reviewers than others and fewer cycles of review.
