What is Peer Review?

Peer review is an editing process in which a scholar's work is reviewed by experts in a field before being accepted for publication.   

More credence is given to journal articles that have gone through a peer review process, ensuring accuracy of content.. 

   ALL peer reviewed journals are scholarly journals.
   Not all scholarly journals are peer reviewed.

What is a Journal Article?

 Not sure what a "journal" is?  

  •     A journal is simliar to a magazine. 
  •     A journal, unlike a magazine, is dedicated to academic topics. 
  •        Examples
      • Journal of American History
      • New England Journal of Medicine
  •     A journal issue consists of articles written by experts within the discipline.
  •     A journal is intended to be read by someone researching in that discipline.
  •     A journal article contains language (words/jargon) specific to that discipline.
  •     A journal article refers the reader to research sources and statistics used to write the article.
  •     A journal article contains a bibliography (references cited) page at the end.
  •     A journal consists of many issues (sometimes weekly, monthly or quarterly).
  •     A journal issue contains several articles which are NOT necessarily on the same topic.
  •     A journal lists each year since it was first published as a volume.  (One volume equals 1 year)
