What is acceptance criteria? How should it be defined?
It is necessary to define acceptance criteria in order to understand the method of any scientific community. The definition of method suggests that it can consist of different criteria for theory assessment. The question is how acceptance criteria are different from other criteria of theory evaluation. Thus, it is a key concept in current Scientonomy.
In Scientonomy, the accepted definition of the term is:
- Criteria for determining whether a theory is acceptable or unacceptable.
