Background Information

These reference tools will help you to build a solid base of background knowledge about your topic. Please note: you will not find any scholarly/peer reviewed resources using these tools!

Is my journal article peer reviewed or refereed?

Search for your journal title (NOT article title) below, in Ulrichsweb

If you see a little referee shirt icon - Refereed icon - or the journal's record indicates it is refereed, it's likely (but not guaranteed) your article has been peer reviewed.

Most articles published in peer reviewed journals are peer reviewed, with a few exceptions. Book reviews, editorials, and letters to the editor are not peer reviewed. 

If you are unsure about whether something you've found is peer reviewed, ask your librarian!
