I Am Looking For Peer Reviewed Articles

A peer-reviewed article has been reviewed by other experts or scholars in the field for quality and originality. To determine if an article is peer-reviewed:

Learn more about the journal your article was published in.

  • If you are in a database, clicking on the journal title may give you more information about the journal.
     
  • Google the title of the journal and look for an editorial policy page or a page for authors. This will tell you whether the journal uses a peer review process.

Last resort: In many databases you can limit your search to only peer-reviewed articles. (This is not ideal, since it will remove some relevant items, such as peer-reviewed book articles. ) 

  • Look for a checkbox that limits a search to academic or peer-reviewed articles on the results page.
     
  • Search in a database or journal that only contains peer-reviewed articles. (Read about the database or journal to identify the nature of its publications.)
