How Can I Tell if a Journal is Peer Reviewed?

There are two approaches you an take to determine if a journal is peer reviewed (scholarly):

1. You can go to the journal's website and look for the words, "peer reviewed" or 'refereed" in the journal description or in the "Information for Authors" section.


2. You can use the Ulrichsweb™ Global Serials Directory database, available through the Mardigian Library, to find information about the journal. Look for the refereed symbol which is an open book.
