PSY105: Introduction to Psychology: Peer Review

About Peer Review

What is Peer Review? 

Peer review is the evaluation of scientific, academic, or professional work by others working in the same field.

Peer-reviewed articles are articles that have undergone a rigorous review process, by peers in their discipline, before publication in a scholarly journal

Why do we use peer reviewed articles?

Using a peer-reviewed article gives your argument more weight, since these articles have been vetted by experts.

How do I find peer reviewed articles?

The easiest way to find peer reviewed articles is to use a library database and use the "Limit to Peer Reviewed" check box. To learn more about how to use a library database go to the PsycINFO tab.
