Peer review

The process by which a book publisher or journal subjects a scholarly work intended for publication to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field.

(See the two blog posts below for a much fuller exploration of this subject.)

I am surprised and disconcerted to see that this term is not defined in the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in two posts, one on peer review and its alternatives, the other on peer review and academic credibility as barriers to self-publishing.
