What is a Scholarly Peer Reviewed Journal ???

Scholarly journals have original research or analysis written by experts within the discipline. The main purpose of scholarly journals is to share research results, theories, and literature reviews.

Empirical studies include:

  • Author's credentials
  • Abstract (summary)
  • Introduction
  • Methods
  • Results
  • Discussion
  • References

Literature reviews, theoretical articles, and other types of articles have different formats.

Peer-reviews journals are scholarly journals that have all articles read by other experts in the field before they are accepted for publication.
