What is peer-reviewed?
Peer-reviewed articles are also called "scholarly" or "academic" articles.
Peer review refers to the editorial process of the journal; articles are reviewed by experts before being approved for publication.
Why is peer-review important?
The articles will be sent to academics or experts in the field who will read it and agree that it contains well-researched, relevant and original work. For this reason peer-reviewed articles are considered more credible than non peer-reviewed articles.
Finding academic articles
When searching the library collection, filter for articles. You can also limit your search to “peer-reviewed” or “scholarly journals”.
