How Can I Tell If an Article is Peer-Reviewed?
Peer-reviewed articles may also be called “scholarly articles,” “academic articles,” or “referreed articles.” They are articles that have been reviewed by peers or experts in the author’s field of research/study.
To learn if an article is peer-reviewed...
- Search for the journal the article appears in within Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory
- If the journal is listed as “referreed” in Ulrich’s (it would have this referree image: ), it is a peer-reviewed journal
Besides checking Ulrich's, here are some clues that an article is peer-reviewed:
- It's long. Generally peer-reviewed articles are at least 10 pages long
- It references other research articles and contains extensive footnotes/endnotes
- It doesn't have glossy pictures or advertisements
- It contains additional author information, such as the author's contact information and scholarly credentials
- It is published by an academic publisher or academic/professional association
