Q. Are "peer reviewed" journals considered as reliable as "scholarly" journals?
Last Updated: Feb 26, 2015     Views: 99


Peer-reviewed articles are considered every bit as credible as scholarly articles when using them in your paper. In many cases, the terms peer-reviewd and scholarly are used interchangeably when researching and writing a paper. Both terms indicate that the article is authoritative and the result of sound research.
