Other words that could describe a "peer-reviewed" paper or article include "scholarly" and "academic."

An author (usually affiliated with a university) write a research paper and sends it to experts in that field of research. These experts look for errors in the writing, evaluate the quality of the research, and recommend revisions to the author. The author makes needed revisions, may send the paper again to experts for more revisions, and finally publishes the paper.
