Scholarly Dog

The Editorial Board

Articles that are submitted to scholarly journals are reviewed by committees of people who are considered to be experts in their fields. These groups of people are called editorial boards, and these experts review article submissions to verify their value to their fields, as well as determine how well they "fit" the journals as defined by individual journal mission statements.

When articles are reviewed by such a "panel of experts," the articles and journals are considered to be "peer-reviewed," "refereed," or "juried."
