Scholarly journal articles are written by and for scholars and professionals in a given field. Some scholarly journals are peer-reviewed. Peer review refers to the process an article goes through before it can be published. Instead of the journal editor alone deciding whether or not to publish a certain article, the article must first be reviewed and judged by other peers (experts in the field). The journal editor then takes into consideration the recommendations of the peer reviewers before deciding whether to publish the article in the journal.
