Peer-Reviewed Journals

Definition of Peer-Reviewed (Mirriam-Webster): a process by which a scholarly work (such as a paper or a research proposal) is checked by a group of experts in the same field to make sure it meets the necessary standards before it is published or accepted.

Peer-Reviewed articles are also known as: scholarly, academic or refereed.

Characteristic of a peer-reviewed article: 

  • Articles are longer (approx. 10-35 pages)
  • Includes a comprehensive bibliography or references.
  • There is an abstract.  
  • Authors are often affiliated with an institution like a university or college.

Verify if a journal is peer-reviewed:

Search by journal title in Ulrich's Periodical Directory to see if the journal record includes a referree jacket icon-this will mean that the journal is in fact "refereed/peer-reviewed".
