Abstract

Peer review has been adopted by most journals to evaluate the quality of submitted manuscripts, for which peer reviewers aim to provide a critical, independent and unbiased assessment. Peer review is ever evolving, with no single peer review system being perfect currently. This review article aims to give a broad overview of the various types of peer review, their advantages, pitfalls, and some related controversies.
