Q: What is the "peer review" process?

A. "If an article is peer reviewed or refereed; it has undergone a review by a peer of the author. The peer has an educational and/or professional background similar to the author; this means the peer has the necessary knowledge and/or experience to evaluate the information found in the scholarly article." from Indiana State University's tutorial, Peer Reviewed or Refereed: Introduction.

Use Ulrichsweb to get more information about a specific journal title. Do a title search, then look at the icons to see if the journal has been peer reviewed (refereed). It is the online version of a "bibliographic database providing detailed, comprehensive, and authoritative information on serials published throughout the world. It covers all subjects, and includes publications that are published regularly or irregularly and are circulated free of charge or by paid subscription."

Ulrichsweb is a fee-based service to which Benner Library subscribes.
