  •  Usually a journal's home page will indicate whether or not it is peer-reviewed.
  • Look the journal up on the Library web site or on Google, and look for an "About" section or "Information for Authors." Usually this will indicate whether the journal is peer-reviewed.
  • Be aware that while a journal may be peer reviewed, not every article in it will be. Things like editorials, columns, and shorter, more newsy-type articles typically don't go through peer review - only the research articles in a peer-reviewed journal are considered peer-reviewed articles.
