Abstract [en]

What is Science? What is Scientific Research? These are some eternal questions which philosophers, academicians and practioner have debated upon for eons, and no doubt shall continue to do so. But, the general consensus is that, scientific research is a quest for new knowledge, and this knowledge has to be critically, methodically and objectively obtained, in order to be considered of potential scientific value. This paper shall not focus on the scientific research principles or criteria, but instead look at one of the evaluating conditions for acceptable scientific research-that of validation of scientific research. Scientific hypothesis and results proposed by a researcher need to be verifiable, repeatable or falsifiable. One such validation is attained through peer review by fellow researchers engaged in scientific research themselves. Today, the way to do so is to submit scientific research papers to conferences, journals and workshops. But is the current system of peer reviewing carried out by the so called 'established' conferences, truly objective, and true validation of innovative research? This paper puts forward some reflections on this issue.
