Q. What is a peer-reviewed journal article?


The major articles in a peer-reviewed or refereed journal are:

  • reviewed for accuracy and completeness
  • by scholars
  • before acceptance for publication.

However, even peer-reviewed journals contain additional material not subject to the peer review process such as:

  • letters to the editor
  • editorials
  • news
  • etc.
