Sustainable development means different things to different people. The definition is intentionally vague to increase the possibility of compromise on hot issues on which reasonable people may differ. To those reduced toward balancing economic and environmental goals .The development says economic growth, and sustainable implies full consideration of environmental factors. It is becoming abundantly clear, however, that to others the term implies virtually no additional economic development. The second position is made with great emotion but insufficient facts and analysis that the path of development is unsustainable because the planet is about to show on humanity's wastes and there is not enough land to meet everyone's demands. Even though that faction, inherently suspicious of technological change and economic growth, was unable to obtain all that it wanted, it is today much closer to its goal.
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.
