Peer Review in 3 Minutes

This short tutorial explains what is mean by the term "peer review" - as in peer reviewed/scholarly/academic journal articles.

Is it peer reviewed?

  • Most library databases provide a search filter to limit results to just peer reviewed articles
  • The "about" page of a journal website will often describe if it is a scholarly, research-based peer-reviewed journal
  • Still not sure? Look up the title in the journal in UlrichsWeb Serials Directory, which lists whether or not journals are peer reviewed.
