What is Peer-Review?



Peer review is an academic term for quality control. Each "Peer-Reviewed" article published on OnePetro was closely examined by reviewers who are experts on the article's topic (that is, the author’s professional peers…hence the term peer review). The reviewers look for proper use of research methods, significance of the paper’s contribution to the existing literature, and integration of previous authors’ work on the topic in any discussion (including citations). Content published as peer-reviewed are expert-approved and the most authoritative sources of information within OnePetro. Many of the papers and articles found on OnePetro have been rigorously reviewed by subject matter experts.
