What are Peer-Reviewed or Scholarly Articles?

Peer reviewed or scholarly journals are periodicals that have a board of scholarly reviewers with expertise in the subject area of the journal.  These scholarly reviewers review materials submitted to the journal before the journal publishes - to check for quality of research and adherence to editorial standards of the journal. If you use materials from peer-reviewed publications they have been vetted by scholars in your field for quality and importance.
