Peer review is a formal process whereby articles are submitted for scrutiny and appraisal by recognised academics or authorities in the appropriate field. These academics or experts may recommend that the paper be accepted as it stands, or that specific revisions be made, or that the paper be rejected for publication. This process of refereeing is known as peer review.
Peer reviewed articles are authoritative because they have been assessed prior to publication by specialists or experts within academic and/or industry fields.
You can check if an article is from a peer reviewed journal using Ulrichsweb global serials directory. Search for a journal's name to see details about the journal including whether it is peer reviewed/refereed.
MultiSearch and specific databases often allow you to search for peer reviewed journal articles however they are not always accurate.
You should always use Ulrichsweb to check a journal's peer reviewed status as it is the most reliable source for this information.
Refereed items are marked with an icon which is a representation of a 'referees shirt'.
