ENGL 1102 IA: Finding Articles

Peer Reviewed

What is a peer reviewed journal?  

“Peer review” journals (or “refereed journals”) mean that an article goes through an editorial process that includes review and approval by the author’s peers (people who are an expert in the same subject area) before being published.

Some databases give you the option to search for only Peer Reviewed items.
