Verifying if the journal your article is published in is peer reviewed

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.



Identify peer-reviewed journals by searching for the journal title (NOT the article title) in Ulrichsweb.

  1. Go to Ulrichsweb
  2. Type in the journal name (not the article title)
  3. Look for the black and white icon to the left of the journal name. If there is not an icon, the journal is not peer reviewed.



Note: If a journal is available in multiple formats, print, electronic, etc., there will be several entries listed in Ulrichsweb.
