What are Scholarly Peer-Review Journal Articles?

Scholarly peer-reviewed journal articles are academic articles that have undergone a rigorous evaluation process by experts in a particular field before publication. These articles are typically written by researchers, scholars, or experts in a specific subject area and are intended to contribute new knowledge, research findings, or insights to that field. The peer review process involves other experts in the field critically evaluating the article's quality, validity, methodology, and significance. Articles that meet the standards of peer review are considered credible and reliable sources of information for academic and research purposes.
