Q. How do you know who peer reviewed the article?
Here's an explanation of peer-reviewed sources:
- When a journal receives an article for publication, the editors of the journal send it out to other scholars in the same field to judge the article.
- An article which has been published in a peer-reviewed journal has been judged to have correct information by similar experts in that field of study.
- This assures readers that the source is scholarly and college-level.
- Usually your Instructor just wants to know that the article was peer-reviewed.
- You are not required to know the names of the other experts.
To find peer-reviewed sources, use the Online Resources.
