Peer Reviewed Journals
Peer-reviewed (also called refereed) journals are recognized as scholarly by their academic or medical peers.
- Some databases, such as CINAHL, allow you to limit your search to only peer reviewed journals.
- If you are using a database that does not provide this option, follow the instructions below for Ulrichsweb.
Identify peer-reviewed journals by searching for the journal title (NOT the article title) in Ulrichsweb:
- Go to Ulrichsweb
- Type in the Journal name (not the article title)
- Look for the black, referee jersey icon to the left of the journal name. If there is not an icon, the journal is not peer reviewed.
Example: Advances in Autism
Note: If a journal is available in multiple formats, print, electronic, etc., there will be several entries listed in Ulrichsweb.
