What is peer-reviewed?
Peer-reviewed (or refereed) articles are published in scholarly journals. Peer-review is a process by which manuscripts are submitted for publication in a scholarly or research journal and are reviewed by subject experts for comment, evaluation, and approval.
For example, researchers write a report about a topic they have studied, and before the report is published, other experts in their field – their peers – edit and fact-check it. After careful revision, the research is eventually published.
So....peer-reviewed articles often go through a revision process after the peer-review and prior to publication. Because of this thorough process, the audience can be particularly confident that the article contains high-quality, thoughtful information.
