Q. What does "Peer-Reviewed" mean?

My professor said I needed to find articles that are peer-reviewed. What does it mean?

Answer

Peer review is a process designed to evaluate and improve the quality of research. Basically, an editor asks experts on the research's topic to read the manuscript and provide feedback. The editor uses that feedback when deciding to accept or reject the manuscript. Some of that feedback is also shared with the authors, who can use it to revise their manuscript.
