Peer review is a rigorous process most scholarly articles undergo before they are published. Scholars in the author's field or discipline review and evaluate the article for quality and validity. If lacking, the article may be rejected. Reviewers often offer suggestions for revision as a condition of acceptance.

If you need help determining if a source is peer-reviewed, contact us or talk with your professor.
