What is Refereed/Peer-Reviewed?

CONCEPT of REFEREED/PEER REVEIW: 
Experts in a field (singly or several people) review an author's work by its written description for methods, plausibility, completeness, ethics, etc. to "weed-out" poorly documented/conceived research, implausible research, poorly constructed research, dishonest research,etc. The hard sciences may also apply a more stringent idea of peer-reviewed by including the idea of blind peer-review. This kind of peer review excludes author and other personal information from the review process. In this case the "editor" as a peer-reviewer is removed from the process.

Scholarly vs. Popular

Scholarly articles are published in journals. Popular articles are published in magazines.  Scholarly articles are sometimes called Peer-reviewed or Refereed. These articles generally include: a research statement/question, brief literature review, methods, discussion, tests/studies, questions, outcomes, conclusions and references.  A popular article is written in general language that is well understood by most readers.  A scholarly article is written for individuals familiar with the subject.
