Key databases

Peer reviewed articles

Peer reviewed means that articles have been reviewed by 'peers' (researchers with expertise in the same subject area as the authors).

  • Library Search
    In your Library Search results, click on 'Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals' under the 'Refine Results' heading to see only articles peer reviewed before publication.
  • Library databases, for example SPORTDiscus
    Select options such as "Academic Journals" or "Scholarly Journals" when these are provided in databases.
  • Ulrichsweb: Global Serials Directory
    Use Ulrichsweb to check if a particular article is from a peer-reviewed journal. Look up the journal title and check it is 'refereed' (another term for peer-reviewed).
