What is a Peer-Reviewed Article?
Some academic journal articles found in the library databases are peer-reviewed, or refereed. These scholarly articles are written by experts and reviewed by other experts to ensure quality and accuracy. After a successful peer review, the article is then published for the public to access.
How can I tell if an article is peer-reviewed?
Not all content from a peer-reviewed journal is reviewed. Articles like editorials, book reviews, and letters to the editor are not considered peer-reviewed articles.
