What is Peer-Review?
Peer-reviewed articles have been evaluated by several researchers or subject specialist in the academic community prior to accepting it for publication. Also known as scholarly or refereed.
Verify that a journal is peer-reviewed by looking up the journal title in Ulrich's Periodicals Directory or on the journal's website.
Remember that there may be content in peer-reviewed journals which is not peer-reviewed. These may be book reviews, letters, or front and back matter. Consult a librarian if you're not sure.
You can also filter search results to display only peer-reviewed articles in most databases.
