What is peer review?

Peer review is defined as the process by which articles submitted for publication in a scholarly journal are reviewed by experts in the subject field (peers) for evaluation and comment (review).  Another term for peer reviewed is "refereed."  Scholarly journals contain original reports of research in specific disciplines written for other scholars and experts in that field.  There should be an abstract or summary in the beginning of the article usually written by the author.
