Peer review articles, also known as scholarly, juried, or academic articles, ensures that the best of the best articles get published. An article that's submitted to a peer reviewed journal undergoes the scrutiny of scholars within the author's field. These scholars tell the journal whether the article should be flat out rejected, whether it should be accepted, or whether it needs to be edited. 

Peer reviewed articles may include:

  • abstract
  • introduction
  • literature review
  • methods
  • results
  • discussion
  • conclusion
  • references
  • figures & tables

Articles that are not peer reviewed include:

  • letters to the editor
  • new briefs
  • editorials
  • review articles
  • book reviews
