Researchers conduct original research and then publish articles about their research in scholarly journals. Articles published in scholarly journals usually go through a peer review process. Researchers may also present their research at a professional conference and in this case they also write a paper that is peer reviewed and published in the proceedings of the conference.
Lets explore how the peer review process works using the video "Peer Review in 3 Minutes" by the the North Carolina State University Library.
