What does peer reviewed mean?


We typically use this phrase in relation to research articles published in scholarly journals. "Peer reviewed" refers to a process by which new research is reviewed by other experts in the field before it is released to the public. Peer reviewers provide feedback to authors on whether the research is of sufficient quality and originality to be published, and offer suggestions on how the work can be improved. This quality control process is why we often give more weight to peer reviewed research articles when working on assignments.
