Rebecca Lawrence of F1000 asks: who is peer review for? The pressures on authors to seek publication in high-impact factor journals leads to some behaving badly, as exemplified by the increasing number of peer review fraud and rings being exposed recently. Equally, the pressure to be first out with a major finding causes some referees to be overly critical or hold papers up, as they are often natural competitors with the authors. Some referees may also need to justify to the editor that they did a good job, leading to excessive requests for additional data and experiments.
