Library FAQ

Is there a list of peer-reviewed journals on the Web?

There is not a list of peer reviewed journals freely available on the Web. To help determine if a particular journal is peer-reviewed, refer to the journal itself (either to an individual issue of the journal or to the publisher's website).

Sometimes journals will have a descriptive paragraph in their opening pages that specifies that the journal is peer-reviewed. Instructions to authors may indicate that manuscript submissions will be peer-reviewed. More subtly, instructions that require multiple copies of the manuscript indicate that they will be sent out for review.

Some databases make it easy to identify peer-reviewed articles by including limits that allow searches to be restricted. Select databases that include peer-reviewed limits: CINAHL, Health Business Elite and SPORTDiscus.
