This guide will help to understand what is peer-review, how it's processed, and how to find peer-reviewed sources.


Library system is the easiest way to search for peer reviewed articles. If publishers provide this information to the libraries, articles, journals and books will appear there with the label Peer review.

Another way is to limit results to publications from peer-review journals


Most of electronic resources for specific disciplines or research areas in the library subscription are academic and should contain the peer-reviewed information. Some might not have a specific search tool for this kind of content, please check the first parts of this libguide to ensure you know how to identify it.

You may also try to search in the abstract databases such as Scopus, Web of Science, Applied Science & Technology Source Ultimate. More of databases are in A-Z list on the library website.


One of the best places to find out if a journal is peer-reviewed is to go to the journal website. Most publishers have a website for a journal that tells you about the journal, how authors can submit an article, and what the process is for getting published.

If you find the journal website, look for the link that says information for authors, instructions for authors, submitting an article or something similar.
