Peer-reviewed articles are published in refereed journals. You will have to check to see if the journal is refereed.

How to check:

  • Look inside a print journal. The editorial policy page will say if it contains peer-reviewed or refereed articles.
  • Look at the journal website. It will indicate if the journal is refereed.
  • Go to the Ulrichsweb database and search for the name of the journal. This database provides information about journals including their refereed status.
  • In a Library search you can limit your search results to Scholarly (peer-reviewed) journals.
