The peer-review process to scientific paper publication allows for scientists to have their research evaluated by their peers.
This means that experts in the field will read, evaluate, criticize, and suggest edits for the works of other researchers in the same field as them. The journal will then take into account each reviewer’s opinion as to whether or not the submitted manuscript should be published.
The peer-review process can be very tedious and lengthy, but it is a good way to ensure the quality and rigor of the scientific process.
