What is peer review?
Peer review (also known as refereeing) is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted articles for publication in journals. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and prevents the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by scholars and professionals.
Many of the databases provided by the MC Library allows you to limit your research to just peer reviewed or scholarly articles. If the database you are using provides this limit option, you can then limit the search to retrieve scholarly or peer reviewed journals only.
