The peer review process is one in which members and experts of the same field get together to review the findings, procedures, arguments, and data within a particular experiment (Dunn & Halonen, 2020). Being part of the same field and familiar with the proper techniques, theories, and ethical considerations, these experts are able to comb through the article in order to determine if the research utilized proper techniques, avoided potential confounds, treated subjects ethically, and came to proper and unbiased conclusions. This process is very important as it can stop a false or inadequate article from being published in a scholarly journal. By doing so, the peer review process can ensure that other articles, or studies, are not founded on the basis of unsupported findings (Myers & Hansen, 2012).
