Peer-reviewed articles are assessed by independent reviewers usually academics  from the same area  of study before being published.  The reviewer will check for mistakes and assess the validity of the research methodology used .   Articles which don’t meet the require standards will be rejected.

In short, it is your guarantee that  the article is scholarly.  

To find scholarly/peer-reviewed articles in Summon simply select the limiter Scholarly & Peer Review by clicking on it
