What is a Peer Reviewed Journal Article?

Definition & Examples of Peer Review

  • Peer Reviewed: Essentially a screening process for journal articles. The authors (scholars, professors, researchers) of the article submit their work to a specific journal in the hopes of getting it published. Before it is published, the authors' "peers" (aka other scholars, professors, or researchers who are experts) review the article. They may suggest the journal editors accept the article, reject the article, or ask for revisions before publishing it.
