Searching as Strategic Exploration

What is a peer-reviewed journal article?  Before an article is published by a scholarly journal, it is reviewed by the journal's editor and experts or peers in the same academic field.  This means that what appears in the scientific literature is more likely to be of a higher quality because it has been subjected to some level of critique.
