Is my journal article from a peer reviewed journal?

What is peer review?

If a journal is peer reviewed (scholarly or refereed), its contents are reviewed and selected by a panel of experts. If the article meets strict guidelines, it may be accepted for publication. Peer reviewed journals hold more credibility and weight in academic circles than material taken from popular magazines.

We have a database which tells us if a specific journal is peer reviewed. It is called Ulrichsweb.

Go to the Library page.
'Quick find databases - By A-Z list'.
Select 'U', then Ulrichsweb.
Enter the title of the journal to determine if it is refereed.


Freyens, B. P. (2010). Managing skill shortages in the australian public sector: Issues and perspectives. Asia Pacific Journal of Human Resources, 48(3), 262-286.

Asia Pacific Journal of Human Resources is the TITLE of the journal.
When you search for these journals in Ulrichsweb you will find the icon referees jumper indicating the journal is refereed (this symbol is actually a referee's jumper!).



Wikipedia should be used with caution. Make use of the references and links at the end of the article.

Avoid citing Wikipedia in your essay: make it a starting point to gain an understanding of your topic.

Getting started

Carefully read the Assignment details in your Moodle unit or homework question.

Analyse the topic and brainstorm relevant keywords to use in your search. Search tips:

  • Think about whether to search using quotation marks for a phrase (for example, "human resource management") or without. Using quotation marks will bring back much smaller number of results, but possibly more relevant. 
  • In many databases you can also use * (shift 8) to return various word endings, for example: Austral* returns Australia, Australian, Australians, etc.
  • Note down other relevant keywords as you conduct your searches and use these alternative terms in further searches.
  • Don't be afraid to vary your keywords and search strategies to return other various results.

Next step: think about the types of resources which may lead to information on this topic (e.g. newspapers, encyclopedias, books, journal articles, etc.) and where to find these resources (Library Search, databases, etc.).
