What are Peer Reviewed Articles?

Peer reviewed articles are published in scholarly, peer reviewed journals and usually follow a consistent format. The articles have gone through a "peer review process" wherein a panel of experts has approved of the quality of writing, soundness of the research methods, logic of results, and significance to the field.
