The terms, "Primary research" and "Peer review" are phrases used interchangeably for the same same type of publication: An author submits an original experiment, manuscript, or research, to an editor and an editorial board: individuals who are recognized as authorities in an area of research and who can give reasonably fair feedback and review to the author. All authors must cite sources, so you will find a "References" or "Reference List" page at the end of a peer-reviewed or primary research article.
Articles for "Peer-review" or "Refereed" journal articles undergo a review process in a narrowly defined field, and the reviewers are recognized scholars in the same discipline as the article's author (e.g., peers). These peers have expertise in a narrow field of research and scholarship, and the article's author is subject to a rigorous review and accountability process before the article is published. The peer review and evaluation system is intended as a safeguard for the quality of scholarly work in a specific field of study. The article's author may be known or unknown to the peer reviewers.
