Peer review is a process of review, it is an academic work of one author reviewed by other experts and scholars in the same field. Hirschauer (2010) proposed that journal peer review could be understood as reciprocal accountability of judgments among peers. Peer review mechanism has been regarded as the focus of the scientific publish by many countries. Almost all the famous journals have used peer review, the reason for that is they believe it is safe to ensure the quality of the scientific publish by peer review. One of the advantages of peer review is that it is hard to point out the whole mistakes and flaws by individual author or single team in the difficult work, but defects could expose easily to show the work to others, with advices…show more content…
To cite a certain number can indicate both the inheritance of science and the respect of other author's fruits of labor. In the meantime, for the others work achievement, it also provides the significant information for the newsroom, auditing experts and readers to identify the value of the paper. And most importantly, the references provide for the readers and review experts the related literature citations of the paper, which facilitates retrieval. Then the information of resources will be shared and the progress of science and technology will be promoted. It is also worth noting that although some classic old documents can be referenced, more new literatures should be cited. With the rapid development of science, many old views have been no longer applicable. In general, with respect to peer review studies, scholars evaluate quality of article directly on the basis of their professional knowledge. Rather, with regard to citation studies, to determine the impact of a particular article by bibliometric methods (Tony, 2004)…show more content…
Wagner, the paper is about with the development of the science, scientists have paid much attention to know the controls that resolve the internal nonuniformities and spatial distribution of black shale in the Mesozoic ocean. It is believed that the interaction among the land, ocean and atmosphere influences the variations in marine biogeochemistry and sediment supply, sequentially affecting richness and quality of sedimentary organic mater and further influencing the petroleum source rock distribution and its generation potential. Generically, continental runoff and marine upwelling have correlation with the ascending and descending limbs of the palaeo-Hadley Cells, with the fluctuations at variable time and spatial scales. We can use the observed spatial patterns of each time period to identify principle differences in organic matter richness and quality across the Atlantic basins and link them, at least to some extent, to the underlying processes. At subtropical-tropical latitudes in the mid-Cretaceous, the most areas of the N-Atlantic made this period particularly sensitive to the influences of Hadley Cell circulation and its latitudinal shifts. We propose to strengthen and improve under greenhouse conditions Cenomanian Turonian deposition conditions at these
