Q. How can you tell, or check if an article is peer reviewed?

How can you tell, or check, or find out if an article is peer reviewed?



The Palmer library maintains a site that might help you out, it is located here...


If you are in a database that can limit searches to peer reviewed/scholarly articles use that function to limit the results to just peer-reviewed articles. 

If you already have an article, look up the journals web page and look for the editorial processes, including peer review.

This information is often listed in the following areas:

  • about us
  • editorial policies
  • instructions for authors
  • submission guidelines

A simple Google search for the journal will usually locate the journal's website.
