Overview of Scholarly Publishing Process


What is peer-review?
Peer review is a rigorous process most scholarly articles undergo before publication. Scholars in the author's field evaluate the article for quality and validity. If these scholarly peers determine that the article is of low quality, the publication may reject it. Reviewers often offer suggestions for revision as a condition of acceptance.
