Is My Article Peer Reviewed?
To determine whether your article is peer reviewed, you need to find out if the journal it is published in is peer reviewed (also known as "refereed"). There are a few quick ways to do this:
The most straightforward way is to locate the journal's website online through a quick Google search, and check for a page or section on their editorial process. Usually, journals that are peer reviewed provide this information up-front on their websites, because they want their readers to know what kind and caliber of publication they are.
At the library, we have access to a tool called Ulrichsweb that will tell searchers directly whether or not a journal is peer reviewed. Ulrich's also provides extensive bibliographic information about scholarly journals and publications that can help you to understand more about their scope and history. Search the title of the journal, (NOT the name of the article) in Ulrich's to find out if it is refereed: .
