Peer review

Articles published in peer-reviewed or refereed journals have been through a formal approval process. An editor and one or more subject specialists review the article before it is accepted for publication. This process is intended to ensure that the article is accurate, well-researched, and contributes to the body of knowledge in the field.

The Library's Primo Search tool and some journal databases include an option to limit your search to scholarly or peer reviewed articles, while others include this information as a part of the record. While this is an indication that the article could be peer-reviewed the definitive way to find out is to use Ulrichsweb.
