Q. How do you know who peer reviewed the article?

Answer

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.
