Peer review overview

Peer review is an essential process in scholarly publishing that ensures the quality, validity, and credibility of published research. The process of peer review involves evaluation of a submitted manuscript by experts in the same field to ensure that it meets the required standards of quality and rigor.

The peer review process is initiated when an author submits their manuscript to a journal for publication. The manuscript is then evaluated by the editor of the journal to ensure that it meets the scope and focus of the journal. If the manuscript is deemed suitable for the journal, it is then sent out to at least two experts in the same field for peer review.

The peer reviewers assess the manuscript for its scientific rigor, accuracy, novelty, and significance. They provide feedback to the editor on the strengths and weaknesses of the manuscript, and make recommendations on whether the manuscript should be accepted, rejected, or revised.
