Peer Review Matters

Why Does Peer Review Matter?

Peer review, when done right…

  • Helps separate objective fact from opinion and conjecture 
  • Assesses originality, correctness, and importance of work
  • Provides constructive feedback so the author can improve both the science and the paper
  • Helps ensure that high quality, original research and information is available for other researchers to build on
  • Is part of the scholarly communication process
