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. If peer reviewed status is important for your assignment, or if the status is in doubt, use the steps below.
Identify peer-reviewed journals by searching for the journal name (not the article title) in Ulrichweb.
Note: If a journal is available in multiple formats, print, electronic, etc., there will be an entry for each in Ulrich's.
