There are many ways to determine if a journal or journal article is peer reviewed. Below are two ways to get you started:

If you don't yet have a journal or article in hand:

  1. Start at the Libraries' Articles & More selection on the main page's search box.
  2. Type your keywords or subjects into the search box and press enter.
  3. On the Search Results page, look for the "Limit To" area on the left side of the results.
  4. Check the box next to "Limit to Peer Reviewed Journals".
  5. The Search Results will re-populate with results that are from peer-reviewed journals.

If you already have a journal or article in hand:

  1. Go to Ulrich's Periodicals Directory at
  2. Type the title of the journal (NOT the title of the article) into the search box.
  3. In the Search Results list, click on the journal title you are interested in.
  4. In the "Basic Description" section of the record, look for the "Refereed" row, which will indicate "Yes" (peer reviewed) or "No" (not peer reviewed).
