Environmental science is the study of the interaction between the living and non-living components of the environment with special emphasis on the impact of humans on these components.Environmental science also looks at the impact that humans are having on the environment, and these have important economic as well as socio-political ramifications. Thus, an effective environmental scientist also must have a solid background in economics, sociology, and political science.
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.
