Peer review is the evaluation of work by one or more people of similar competence to the producers of the work (peers). It constitutes a form of self-regulation by qualified members of a profession within the relevant field. Peer review methods are employed to maintain standards of quality, improve performance, and provide credibility.This journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice-versa, throughout the review process.

Many journals, and a few conferences, operate with a so called “double blind” peer review policy. This means that the reviewers of the paper won’t get to know the identity of the author’s , and the author’s won’t get to know the identity of the reviewer. The idea is that everyone should get a similar and unbiased review. Peer review can be categorized by the type of activity and by the field or profession in which the activity occurs, e.g., medical peer review.
