Academic Journals 

Academic journals are also known as peer-reviewed journals.

  • Peer review is a process that research articles and some literature reviews go through before being published.

  • The process is used to assess the quality of a submitted manuscript.

  • Independent experts/researchers within the field review the submitted manuscripts for originality, validity, and significance.

  • If a journal is rejected for publication the reviewers (also known as referees) will generally provide notes to the author(s).

  • The authors would need to address the issues presented in the notes prior to resubmitting the manuscript for a revaluation. 

  • A common peer-review type is known as double-blind peer review. In this type neither the author(s) or reviewers known the identities of each other. 

  • You may find out if and what type of peer-review process is being used by a particular journal by going to the journal's website submission guidelines page. For example here is the submission guideline page for Child Development

Please note that not all articles published in peer-reviewed journals are peer-reviewed. Only empirical or theoretical research studies and some literature reviews (e.g. meta-analysis) are peer-reviewed.
