Peer-reviewed scholarly articles
Q: What does "peer-reviewed" mean?
When an article is sent out to other experts in the field (peers) for review, and those experts agree that the article is worth publishing, then that is a peer-reviewed article. It is held to a higher standard and is more reliable than opinion or advice articles. It is not a guarantee of accuracy or lack of bias.

Understanding different types of peer review:
According to Taylor & Francis, a respected publishing company: Peer review can take many forms. The most common types are:
Single-blind: the reviewers know that you are the author of the article, but you don’t know who the reviewers are.
Double-blind: the reviewers don’t know that you are the author of the article, and you don’t know who the reviewers are either.
Open review: you know the names of the reviewers, and they know your name too.
Post-publication open review: after your article is published, readers can comment on it.
