Peer review is a review process used by many scholarly journals, in which the research article is sent to a group of the researcher’s professional peers for assessment. The “peers” in peer review are other experts in the same field as the author of the article. The readers make recommendations for revisions and ultimately decide whether the paper is worthy of being published in the research journal.
