  • If you want to search exclusively for peer-reviewed journals, most databases and Summon Power Search will allow a user to limit results to only peer-reviewed journals. Often times, databases will call these “Scholarly Journals” or “Academic Journals.”
  • If you have a specific journal title you want to check:
  1. Click on the “DATABASES” link on Miller Library's homepage.
  2. Select “All Databases A-Z”
  3. Select “Ulrich's Periodical Directory” toward the bottom of the list.
  4. Beside the search box, select “title” and type in the title of the journal.
  5. When the journal title comes up, look to see if a icon of a Referee's Jersey is located to the left of the journal title. If so, the publication is peer-reviewed.
  • If you are unsure a article is peer reviewed or not after following these steps, contact a reference librarian.
