Peer review is defined as the “critical assessment of manuscripts submitted to [publications] by experts who are not part of the editorial staff.”

Ninety-one percent of authors think that peer review improved the quality of their article (Sense About Science Peer Review Survey). Reviewers help authors hone key points, identify and resolve errors, and generate new ideas. Peer review ensures the integrity of science by excluding invalid or low-quality research.
