Research Support : Find Scholarly Journals

An introduction to library services and resources available to support researchers at UTAS.

What is a peer-reviewed journal?

A peer reviewed journal (also known as a refereed journal) publishes articles that have been assessed critically by other scholars in the author's field.

Peer review is the accepted method for ensuring that information is of the highest quality.

A peer reviewed journal will have:

  • a copy of a reviewer’s assessment relating to the article;
  • a statement in the journal certifying that contributions are peer reviewed; or
  • a statement by the journal editor certifying that contributions are peer reviewed.

If you don't have access to a copy of a journal visit the journal homepage to access the submission guidelines and other indications of status.
