What is an Annual Review?
A review article is a gateway to essential primary research that critically examines and qualifies the wide array of primary research material published and available to the scientific community on a chosen topic.
Review articles survey primary research — including books, articles, and other sources — relevant to a particular area of inquiry or research to summarize and evaluate each important idea and finding. (Annual Reviews website)
