Identifying Peer-Reviewed Content

This workshop explains what peer review is and how you can identify whether an article is peer-reviewed.

Instructions

To identify whether an article is peer-reviewed*

  1. Check the journal article itself. Is there an indication at the top about peer review?Is there mention of peer review in an Acknowledgements or Additional Information section?
  2. Check the journal website – perhaps in the About, Editorial Policies, or Instructions to the Author sections. Do these mention a peer-review process?
    1. If so, does the journal specify which sections are or are not peer-reviewed?
  3. Check the database in which you are searching. Does it allow you to limit your search to peer-reviewed content?

*These instructions may vary depending on the specific journal or database you’re looking at.
