MARTINEZ, GLADYS S. Peer review and Selection of Articles for Publishing. Rev. colomb. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.21, n.1, pp.27-35. ISSN 0121-5469.

Peer review of scientific manuscripts aims to evaluate the originality, quality, and relevance of research data. Although with some variations, this system has been institutionalized, is still a central part in the validation of scientific publications, and is accepted by most scientists as the best evaluation option available. The article briefly describes this evaluation system's strengths and weaknesses, and reflects on alternatives for its improvement, some of which may prove to be useful for journals published in Spanish.

Keywords : peer review; blind peer review; alternatives to peer review; bias; scientific publication.
