Q: What is a peer-reviewed journal?
Answered By: Deborah Lee Last Updated: Aug 18, 2022 Views: 2
Peer-reviewed journals are also sometimes referred to as scholarly or refereed journals. They are written by scholars and are reliable sources of information on a topic or subject. The peer-review process requires that articles are verified and reviewed (hence the name peer-reviewed!) by other scholars before the article is published. The reviewing scholars evaluate the quality of the article before it can be published.
To find peer-reviewed journals and journal articles, our online databases provide some assistance. A lot of databases allow you to limit your search to only peer-reviewed articles. Many will also provide information in either an icon or text on the search results, indicating the article is peer-reviewed.
