Which articles are peer-reviewed?

Apply the Availability > Peer-reviewed Journals filter to your search results to see only scholarly articles.

Look for the purple PEER REVIEWED icon to verify that an article was published in a scholarly journal.

Request article full text

You may encounter "abstract-only" records in the library's resources. This means the item record does not include a PDF or HTML of the article's full text. That's okay! You can use fast and free interlibrary loan (ILL) service to request the article's full text >>

What does "peer-reviewed" mean?

Before it is published in a journal, the article manuscript is read and evaluated by fellow experts in the same field of study. This is called the "peer review process."
