What it means?
It means that all the content to be published, whether for a book or for an article in a journal, is submitted first to an evaluation by the editor and that the editor sends them to specialists in the respective area of the content to be reviewed and evaluated.
In order for this process to be done in the most impartial way possible, all references to the identity of the author/authors are cleared before the content is sent for review. Thus, peer review focuses on assessing the quality of writing, the quality of the content and the quality of the methods used in the investigation. If the article is directed to a specific scientific journal, the peer review will also focus on the assessment of compliance, or not, with the editorial standards of that same journal.
The level of quality demand adopted by the peer review will determine the quality of the published content.
From 2021 on, UCP PRESS will systematically implement peer review of the content to be published, so that it can be included in the restricted group of international academic publishers whose indication in sources is in itself an indicator of quality and credibility of the work to be presented by students, researchers and the general public.
