Peer-Review Process

Many articles in scholarly journals are "peer-reviewed". This publication standard is the process by which editors have experts in a field review articles or books submitted for publication by the experts’ peers.  Peer review helps to ensure the quality of an information source by publishing only works of proven validity, methodology, and quality. That way, we can have a higher sense of reliability and trust when citing their research or using it in a real-world scenario. Peer-reviewed journals are also called refereed or scholarly journals.

Many of our research databases allow you to filter your search to only show peer-reviewed journals.
