Justipedia explains Daubert Standard

In court cases, expert witnesses are sometimes called to provide testimony which can shed light on some of the complicated or scientific points of the trial. However, to prevent an expert witness from presenting confusing or misleading information, the judge uses a standard to determine whether or not the expert witness' testimony is admissible. This standard is what is known as the Daubert Standard. It basically involves figuring out if the information that the expert witness provides has gone through the process of becoming legitimate in the scientific community.
