Peer Review

Peer review is the evaluation of the quality of scholarly work.  After a manuscript is submitted, a journal editor screens the manuscript and decides whether or not to send it for full peer review. Only after clearing the initial screening is the manuscript sent to two or more peer reviewers who are experts on the article’s topic. Finally, journal editors or the journal’s editorial board consider the peer reviewers’ reports and make the final decision to accept or reject the manuscript for publication.

Peer review helps to decide whether the work should be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. The goal of Peer review is to enhance the quality of the work and provide credibility to  the literature in their discipline.
