The purpose peer review is to enable authors to reach high & accepted standards during the dissemination of research data by the scrutinization of their research data by experts of the same field. Peer review also has its own share of demerits and points for criticism. Various new modifications have been proposed yet a more robust system is yet to be fully developed. It is expected that we make the most of this method to ensure that our fellow orthopaedicians get the most valid and filtered high-quality results from our research..
