Finding Peer Reviewed Articles on the Internet

When you find an article on the Internet, it may not be clear whether it is from a peer reviewed journal.

To determine whether a journal is peer reviewed,

  • Check the website for the journal.
    • It may say on the main page that the journal is peer reviewed.
    • If not, check the "About" or "Mission" section of the journal's website
    • If not, check the "Guidelines for Authors" or "Submission Guidelines" section of the journal's website
