Searching for Peer-reviewed articles:
Finding peer-reviewed articles in WISE
If you search for your topic and click "Peer Reviewed" on the sidebar, your search will return only those results that have been published in peer-reviewed journals (including research articles but also book reviews and editorials)
Is my article from a peer-reviewed journal?
If you have a journal article that you're not sure if it’s peer-reviewed, the easiest thing to do is search for the title of the article in WISE. Sort by "Best Match" instead of "Library" if it does not come up. On the article record, you should see the author's name, the journal it is published in, and the date published. If it was published in a peer-reviewed article, you will see a small icon of a person with a checkmark.
If you cannot confirm this via WISE (typically if the journal is new or small) you can search for information on the title of the journal (not the article) using a search engine like Google. Search the journal title + peer review (or review process)
You will likely be able to find the Journal’s website or submission guidelines, which will hopefully include language about the review process.
If you’re having trouble finding this information, ask your professor or a librarian for help determining if it is an appropriate source. Please note that there are a growing number of fake or predatory journals and spotting them may require a trained eye.
