Getting published: Peer review

Peer review

What is peer review?

‘Scholarly peer review (also known as refereeing) is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal or as a book.’ (Wikipedia definition of Peer Review)

Traditional peer review (single-blinded, double-blinded) has been joined by discussion of new approaches such as post-publication peer review, open peer review, automated peer review.
