NUT201 Research Skills Guide: Peer review

Library Information Literacy Task

Find Peer reviewed articles

Articles published in peer reviewed or refereed journals have been through a formal approval process, they are reviewed by subject specialists before being accepted for publication. This process is intended to ensure that the article is:

  • accurate
  • well-researched
  • contributing to the body of knowledge in the field

To find peer reviewed articles:

  • Select to show only peer reviewed journals in Primo Search
  • Limit to peer reviewed or scholarly journals in journal databases

However, as these options are just an indication of peer review status the definitive way to find out if your article has been peer reviewed is to use Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory.

Try it now

Log in to Ulrichsweb Global Serial Directory now to check whether the articles you have found are from peer reviewed journals. Remember to search using the Journal title, not the article title.

You can also access Ulrichsweb from our A-Z Databases page under the Library's list of "U" databases.
