When an article is Peer-Reviewed, the editors of the journal send it to experts in the relevant field; e.g., an article about Early Childhood Education would go to other academics and researchers in that area These experts provide feedback (about the quality of research and presentation of findings, and more) and may recommend changes. This ensures that the articles that are published in academic journals have scholastic merit and contribute to the overall research in that field.
