A campaign developed by a business to encourage potential customers to purchase a good or service. An advertising strategy is generally tailored to a target audience perceived to be most likely out of the population to purchase the product. Advertising strategies include elements such as geographic location, perceived demographics of the audience, price points, special offers, and what advertising media, such as billboards, websites, or television, will be used to present the product. Advertising is a form of product or service promotion that directly targets an audience bringing attention, awareness, need and company exposure.
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.
