Peer-review is a quality-control process used by publications to help ensure that only high quality, methodologically sound information is presented in the publication. In the peer-review process material submitted for publication is sent to individuals who are experts on the topic. Those experts read the material and suggest to the editor whether the material should be rejected, should be accepted, or should be sent back to the authors with a request for revisions. Almost all peer-reviewed journals are scholarly journals.
