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 the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Hakob Barseghyan in 2015. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. Acceptance Criteria (Barseghyan-2015) is currently accepted by Scientonomy community as the best available definition of the term. Acceptance Criteria (Barseghyan-2015) states "Criteria for determining whether a theory is acceptable or unacceptable."
