Characteristics of Peer Review (a listicle)

  • Verifiable (in other words, they provide full citations of people and work they reference so that you can look up that work yourself)
  • Reproducible (this applies mostly to scientific research; not relevant to the humanities and liberal arts)
  • The work responds to and furthers an existing conversation
  • University Presses and most scholarly organizations publish peer reviewed content in an increasing variety of formats (an example of a professional organization would be the Society for Cinema and Media Studies)
  • In the sciences, some commercial companies also publish peer reviewed content (Springer springs to mind, their most recognized journal perhaps being Nature)
