Peer Review

  • Scientific check and balance
  • An author/team submits to a peer-reviewed journal where it is read over by reviewers
  • Revisions are made and the paper is resubmitted for publication
  • Not all primary research and review articles are peer reviewed
  • Not all articles in a peer-reviewed journal undergo this process (editorials, letters to the editor, opinion, pre-prints)
  • Check conference websites for peer-review
  • Determine peer-review status by googling and visiting the journal website or check out the listing on Ulrichsweb
