What is peer reviewed journal? (important research concept)
Peer-Reviewed Journals employ an editorial board, editor, and system of academic reviewers who assess the quality of the research and contribution to the discipline of submitted articles and recommend to the editor whether the article should be accepted/published as is, returned for minor revisions, or rejected. Rejections might include recommendations of other journals for which the article might be a better fit. Normally, the system is double-blind -the author does not know the identify of the reviewer and the reviewer does not know the identity of the author.
