The Peer Review Process


  • An article written for publication in a scholarly journal undergoes rigorous evaluation through a peer review process.

  • Specialists, or scholars in the same field as the author, evaluate the submitted manuscripts. They assess the quality of the scholarship, reliability of findings and relevance to the field. 


Not all academic articles are peer reviewed. Select the peer reviewed option on the library's discovery platform to limit results to peer reviewed journals
