Two international standards that define "journal" are ISBD app. E (Preliminary consolidated ed. 2007), available at http://www.ifla.org/VII/s13/pubs/ISBD_consolidated_2007.pdf , and the glossary to Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (2d ed. rev.). I believe scholarly journals, and peer-reviewed scholarly journals, are identified as such in Ulrich's International Periodicals Directory <http://www.ulrichsweb.com> (the publisher's submission form is at <http://www.ulrichsweb.com/ulrichsweb/ulrichsweb_news/NewListings.pdf>, so searching in that database might be a place to start. But publishers unfamiliar with traditional distribution methods might not know to list in Ulrich's. The international ISSN database <http://www.issn.org> doesn't appear to identify journals or peer reviewed journals. I'm not aware of a standard (national or international) for peer review of articles in scholarly journals, though national government agencies have standards for peer review of grant proposals. See, e.g. <http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/meritreview/>. (If anyone knows of a national or international standard for journal article peer review, I'd very much like to see it.) Each scholarly journal or publisher appears to apply its own peer review procedures: see, e.g. <http://publish.aps.org/policies>, <http://pubs.acs.org/paragonplus/review/joceah/index.html>. Robert C.
