What is a Peer-Reviewed Article?

In order to be peer-reviewed, an article must go through a rigorous process involving multiple experts in the field who evaluate the article for quality and accuracy. A peer-reviewed article is also known as a scholarly or academic article.

In order to be published in a peer-reviewed journal, an article must first undergo a process of screening by the journal editor. If the editor believes the article is worthy of consideration, it will then be sent out for anonymous review by experts in the field. These experts, also known as referees, will provide feedback to the editor regarding the quality and suitability of the article for publication. The editor will then make a decision based on the feedback provided by the referees.

If you are writing a research paper, you may be asked to find articles that have been peer-reviewed. The library’s Databases A-Z list can help you locate databases that contain only peer-reviewed articles.
