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”.
