Peer review, also known as refereeing, is the process by which scholars critically appraise each other's work. It is intended to ensure a high level of scholarship in a journal and to improve the quality and readability of a manuscript.
The peer review process is applied to both primary articles (i.e. articles which present findings from original research) and to review articles that summarize primary research.
When the manuscript of an article is submitted to a peer-reviewed journal, independent experts are asked to read and comment on the manuscript. If approved by the reviewers, the manuscript is accepted for publication as an article in the journal.
