Why to publish in peer-reviewed scientific journals? There are several reasons to have your article published in a scientific journal, such as:
- It gives credibility to your scientific work as it will be reviewed by your peers, and allows you to address immediate concerns, comments, and suggestions by your peers (i.e., experts in your field),
- It provides a way to verify and validate your scientific work by other researchers (peers), independently and unbiasedly,
- It increases a trust on your research work as other researchers (peers) can cite and follow your research program,
- It recognizes and documents your ideas and concepts, especially for important discoveries in which your work is original,
- It allows you to connect your research to the research conducted by your peers,
- It permits you to criticize and improve your research and the research conducted by other researchers in an organized and coordinated way,
- It measures your productivity by creating citation indexes of your research (e.g., H-index and citation impact), though this has been a subject of criticism.

The humans who run this city of beef had been up for hours. Steam billowed from the stacks of the feed mill; trucks rumbled down alleys, pouring rivers of steam-flaked corn into nine miles of concrete troughs. In one crowded pen after another, large heads poked through the fence and plunged into the troughs. For most of the 43,000 cattle here, it would be just another day of putting on a couple pounds of well-marbled beef. But near the yard’s north end a few hundred animals were embarking on their final journey: By afternoon they’d be split in half and hanging from hooks..." National Geographic Magazine, November 2014.
