Peer Review Process

What are peer-reviewed articles?

Peer-reviewed articles are scholarly articles that have gone through a lengthy editorial process before they were accepted for publication. The process involves the article being sent to other experts in the same field who will review and judge the strength of the article on the originality of the research, the methods used, and the validity of findings. Peer-reviewed articles are considered the highest form of scholarly articles.

Have a look at the video about the peer review process, and then answer the quiz question below it. The video and exercise are taken from the book Doing Research by KPU librarian Celia Brinkerhoff.
