peer review
When a paper is published in a research journal, researchers from the field are asked to read the paper to determine if it is worth publishing, if it has already been published by someone else, and also to correct any mistakes before the paper makes it into print. The process is called "peer review" because the paper is reviewed by the people who it affects the most - other people in the field, your "peers."
