Check the journal's website! Most journals (academic, scholarly, or peer-reviewed) have websites that describe the journal, how to publish in it, and the editorial and review processes. Find a journal's website by searching the journal's full title - usually something like "Journal of Biology" or "Journal of the American Biological Association." On the website look for information about peer review on pages like these:

  • About us
  • Editorial policies
  • Instructions for authors
