In a peer review, independent experts evaluate the validity of research, making a judgment on the credibility of results and the appropriateness of the design and methodology of any underlying experiments or studies. The peer review process means that the statements made by scientists, social scientists, and technologists are critically and qualitatively different from statements made in ordinary news stories. Peer review ensures that news is much more than just another opinion. All news at ScholarlyNewsTM originates from peer-reviewed and scholarly sources.
