Q. What is a PEER REVIEWED or REFEREED or SCHOLARLY JOURNAL ARTICLE?
A scholarly or peer reviewed article has gone through a particular editorial process. The editorial process consists of a panel of experts (usually 3) reading through the article and concluding the research was done correctly and the information is accurate. Scholarly articles usually are longer than 5 pages, have no advertisements, and have bibliographies at the end. To find out if a journal is peer reviewed you can check the information in the database, or look at the journal's website.
