Peer Reviewed Journals

Peer-reviewed publications are targeted to those working in college and universities and specific fields of research. "Peer review" means that before being published in the journal, each article has undergone critical evaluation for accuracy and reliability by a panel of experts and authorities in the field.

Characteristics of a Peer-Reviewed Publication

Purpose

Authors

Locate Peer Reviewed Articles

Use any of our EBSCO databases
or our Academic OneFile database

and use their limit features to search only for peer reviewed articles.

Note: Even if  you restrict a database search to bring back only "peer-reviewed" article results, keep in mind that those results will still contain editorial and opinion pieces, book reviews, news blurbs, and other types of short, non-scholarly articles not acceptable for academic research but which appear in peer reviewed publications anyway.

How do I search for articles published only in scholarly/research reviewed journals, or for articles in popular magazines, and how do tell the difference?
