Often students are required to use scholarly, peer-reviewed or refereed journal articles in their assignments. Many students contact the Library’s Ask Us online info desk because they don’t understand the terms and are not sure how to tell if an article or journal is peer reviewed/refereed.
In response to these queries the CSU Library team has created a handy online guide titled How do I tell if an article or journal is peer reviewed? on the Library website which explains the terms and provides tips on how to tell if an article or journal is peer reviewed.
Other useful guides are available on the Library’s How do I…? page.
