Introduction to peer review

What is peer review?

Peer review is used to determine the quality of a manuscript before it is published. Independent reviewers in the relevant field assess submitted manuscripts for validity, originality, and significance to help editors determine whether a manuscript should be published in their journal.

How does the peer review process work?

When a manuscript is first submitted to a journal, it is reviewed to see if it meets the criteria for submission. If it does, the editorial team will select potential peer reviewers within the field to review the manuscript and make recommendations. The author(s) make necessary revisions and returns the manuscript to the editor who reviews comments and either rejects or accepts manuscript for publication.

There are two main types of peer review used by The Journal of Current Clinical Care:

Single-blind: the reviewers know the names of the authors, but the authors do not know who reviewed their manuscript.

Open peer: authors know who the reviewers are, and the reviewers know who the authors are.

Why do peer review?

Peer review is an important part of scientific publishing that confirms the validity and originality of the manuscript. Peer reviewers are experts who volunteer their time to help improve the manuscripts they review. By undergoing the peer review process, manuscripts should become:

More robust - peer reviewers may point out gaps in a paper that require more explanation.

Easier to read - reviewers can suggest changes if parts of the paper are difficult to understand.

More useful - peer reviewers consider the importance of the paper to others in a specific field.
