In contrast to popular sources, peer-reviewed journals are written primarily by scientists, for scientists. The goal of a peer-reviewed article is to communicate new scientific research in the context of past research. The language in peer-reviewed articles is often technical and publishing follows a rigorous editing and approval process.
