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 (and often narrowly defined) 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 irrelevantfindings, 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 peer reviewing process will increases the probability that weaknesses will be identified and improved.
