Peer reviewed journals

Your lecturer will often require that you include information from academic journals when writing your assignments. Academic journals are very different from popular magazines.

Academic journals may also be called scholarly and are often peer-reviewed or refereed.

At university you are expected to use reputable sources. Peer review is an accepted measure of quality. Depending on your discipline and assignment, you may be required to use at least some peer reviewed articles.


How do I find peer reviewed articles?

  1. Some databases such as ScienceDirect, PsycARTICLES and SAGE Premier include ONLY peer reviewed journal articles.

  2. Most other databases, for example ProQuest, allow you to limit to peer reviewed, either by selecting an option before searching, or from the results screen.

The Library's Search allows you to refine your search to 'Peer-reviewed Journals':

Search peer-reviewed

3. Some databases, like ProQuest, may allow you to select a scholarly limit. This search removes popular material but is not the same as limiting to peer reviewed.



Checking whether a journal IS peer reviewed

If a database limits to 'scholarly' but does not specify 'peer reviewed', and you need peer reviewed articles, you can check a journal's status by using Ulrichsweb.

Ulrichsweb is an easy to search source of detailed information on more than 300,000 journals of all types: academic and scholarly journals, e-journals, peer-reviewed titles, popular magazines, newspapers, newsletters.

Go to the A-Z list of databases.
Select 'U' for Ulrichsweb.
Log in to Ulrichsweb.
Enter the title of the journal. [Ulrichsweb likes to have the exact title - no shortcuts. Otherwise it may not locate the journal correctly].

Note the 'Refereed' symbol.

Hint: A common mistake is to think that Ulrichsweb will provide you with the articles from the journal. This is not the case! It is a great resource letting you know all about the journal, but not the contents of the journal.
