What does "peer-reviewed" mean? Last Updated: Jul 19, 2018 Views: 1
A peer-reviewed scholarly journal is one written by experts in a particular discipline. After submitting an article for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, a board consisting of the author's peers (other experts in the field) will review the article. The article is published after reviewers evaluate the author's research and determine the article is suitable for publication. This process helps a scholarly journal maintain standards and assure credibility.
