Scholarly peer review (also known as refereeing) is the process of scrutinizing author's scholarly work, research or ideas by the of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing work is published in a journal. Peer review is carried by a community of experts in a given field, who are qualified and able to perform impartial review. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and prevents the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, and unacceptable interpretations. As 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, it is advocated that showing work to others increases the probability that weaknesses will be identified and improved . However, the decision whether or not to publish a scholarly article, or what should be modified before publication, lies with the editor of the journal to which the manuscript has been submitted.
