Our library's databases contain articles from a range of sources, including academic journals, newspapers, and popular magazines. Articles in newspapers and magazines are not peer-reviewed. Most of the articles in our online library's academic journals are peer-reviewed, although not all. To be sure you're getting peer-reviewed articles, limit your search or your search results to "Peer reviewed."
To check a journal's status in Library Search:
- In your results list, click on the title of the article you're interested in, then look for "Source", which is the title of the journal.
- Click on the blue text (the title), which takes you to a new page with information about the journal.
- Look at the end of the "Publication Details" -- it should say whether the journal is peer-reviewed or not. If it doesn't say, please contact the Library Services Desk for assistance.
