What are peer-reviewed publications?
A peer-reviewed (or refereed) publication is where a subject expert affiliated with an academic institution or professional organization has reviewed the articles for accuracy, validity and clarity of the information presented before approving them for publication in a scholarly journal.
This process is moderated by the journal editorial staff and a group of peers (experts in the subject area) to ensure the quality of work submitted for publication.
Each article submitted for publication is carefully critiqued and judged on multiple criteria including credibility, reliability and relevance to the field of knowledge in a particular subject area.
In the library's databases, you can limit the results of your search to find just peer-reviewed articles.
Please contact your campus librarians if you have any further questions.
