The workshop Peer Review Under Review, held at ESO Headquarters in Garching, Germany from 6 to 10 February 2023, marked a significant milestone, being the first conference focusing on peer review within the astronomical community. This unique gathering not only convened representatives from many of the major astronomical organisations but also drew experts from such diverse fields as computer science, social sciences, statistics, meta-research, and other relevant domains. This unique group of experts critically examined the current state of peer review in the scientific community. This report summarises the presentations and discussions, and the conclusions that emerged during the workshop.
