What is Peer Review?
Peer-reviewed articles (also know as refereed) go through a process where they are analyzed by experts in a field before publication.
articles are examined to evaluate the quality of research
reviewers decide if the article adds to the content of the field
Articles can be scholarly (written and published for an academic audience), yet not go through the peer-review process.
When you find your journal, look for a "referee shirt" symbol. The symbol will appear next to any journal title that is peer reviewed and/or refereed (interchangeable terms).
2. If the journal is peer reviewed, then assess the article
Is it a full research article? If your article is a short news brief, an editorial, a letter to the editor, or a re-print of a conference proceeding, it is not peer reviewed.
