Peer-review is a method of scientific quality assurance. The editors of a scientific journal evaluate if the article offered for publication is relevant and fit for publication. After this, outside referees, which consist of field-specific experts, evaluate the factual content and scientific significance as well as the originality and novelty value of the text in peer-reviewed publications.
The assessors of the publication are independent of the manuscript under consideration. Independent assessors are distinguished researchers or other experts who are not the editors of the journal or book. The evaluation can be carried out either anonymously or openly.
