What is "peer review?"

Peer-review refers to the process that journal articles must go through in order to be published in a scholarly journal. Before an article is published, it must be reviewed and critiqued by a panel of other researchers in that field. This process ensures that the highest standards of research are upheld. These articles are known as peer-reviewed or scholarly articles.

For more information about peer review, and to see a sample journal, click the Peer Review tab.

Need the full article?

Our databases include abstracts (summaries) and selected full text of articles. If the complete article you want is NOT in one database, it may be available in another. Most abstract-only citations in EBSCO databases now include the option to cross-search other library resources to attempt to locate a full-text article- look for this icon: Link Source Icon

Or, if you have a citation or want a particular journal, search the Journal Locator manually by journal name to see which database includes the full text of selected journal titles.
