This editorial is written with an intention to increase awareness regarding peer review process. When I approached my colleagues requesting them to take up the responsibility of peer review for APJ Psychol Med, they were hesitant. The reasons could be: a busy schedule, other competing demands, lack of awareness, and so on. So I thought of making the same the subject of the editorial... peer review, the buzz word in scientific communities. The fact that an individual is invited as a reviewer means that such a person has a professional standing, is academically sound, competent and most importantly, in the editor's view, can do justice to that role. This editorial caters to biomedical research. This is by no means an exhaustive account. I have not discussed aspects like ‘how to write the review’, ‘qualities of a good reviewer’, and so on. Readers are encouraged to dwell deeper into the subject.
