Peer-Reviewed Journals

In peer-reviewed journals, also known as refereed journals or scholarly journals:

  •  articles are published only after they have been critically evaluated and approved by several scholars (expert peer-reviewers)
  •  reviewers can recommend that a paper be rejected, revised and re-submitted (rejection is still possible), or accepted. Acceptance without revisions is rare.
  •  authors do not usually know the identity of their reviewers. In "double blind" peer review, both author and referee are anonymous.

Peer review lends credibility to the article by confirming that the research meets the standards of the scholarly community.
