Addiction is a state of mind that induces the individual to get obsessed with a particular task, thing, or substance such as drugs, alcohol, tobacco etc, which may turn harmful if the activity persists beyond limits. Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
