Q: Are featured articles on society journals peer reviewed?

Detailed Question -

Are featured articles on society journals peer reviewed also just as normal journal articles?

1 Answer to this question

Thank you for your question! Most featured articles, except for editorials and book reviews, go through the peer review process before publication.

However, in case you mean “feature articles,” the process may vary. Feature articles are typically submitted by invitation and aim to bring the reader up-to-date with research in a particular field, highlighting areas of special excitement and progress. Having said that, most feature articles are not peer reviewed; however, the publication process may vary amongst journals.
