What is Peer Review?

In the peer review process, one scholar reviews another scholar's writing prior to publication to ensure that certain professional and disciplinary standards are met. 

Peer review may be implemented in a number of ways. Single anonymized and double anonymized (or single and double "blind") peer review are the most common systems, but other systems include open (or signed) review and post-publication review.

The resources on this page will help you to better understand how these various peer review systems work.
