DefinitionA peer is a person of the same age, status, or ability as another specified person.
Peer review (known as refereeing in some academic fields) is a scholarly process used in the publication of manuscripts and in the awarding of funding for research. Publishers and funding agencies use peer review to select and to screen submissions. The process also forces authors to meet the standards of their discipline. Publications and awards that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by scholars and professionals in many fields. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer_review [Sept 2005]
