on the left (right)

A ring over which all left (right) modules are balanced. A ring is balanced on the left if and only if all its quotient rings are QF-$1$-rings, that is, if all the exact left modules over it are balanced. In particular, a ring is balanced if all its quotient rings are quasi-Frobenius. Every balanced ring can be split into a direct sum of a uniserial ring and rings of matrices over local rings of a special type. Every balanced ring is semi-perfect. A Noetherian balanced ring is an Artinian ring.
