Peer Review Process
What is Peer Review...?
Peer review is a process of self-regulation by a profession or a process of evaluation
involving qualified individuals within the relevant field. Peer review methods are
employed to maintain standards, improve performance and provide credibility. In
academia, peer review is often used to determine an academic paper's suitability
for publication. In case of blind peer review, the identity of the authors would
not be revealed to reviewer/referee till the paper is published in the journal.
Why Peer Review...?
It is difficult for authors and researchers, whether individually or in a team,
to spot every mistake or flaw in a complicated piece of work. This is not necessarily
a reflection on those concerned, but because with a new and perhaps eclectic subject,
an opportunity for improvement may be more obvious to someone with special expertise
or who simply looks at it with a fresh eye through different angle. Reviewing of
the research of others can identify the possible weaknesses / flaw, thus quality
would be improved. For both grant-funding and publication in a scholarly journal,
it is also normally a requirement that the subject is both novel and substantial.
