What does peer review mean? Do you have any peer reviewed journals and where can I find them?

A peer reviewed journal is one that uses a system of reviewers who are the professional equals of the principal author of an article or book. Many academic journals utilize the peer review process. Several NC LIVE database carry peer reviewed journals and allow you to limit your search to peer reviewed titles.

The top recommended resource for peer-reviewed articles is ProQuest Central, but many other NC LIVE databases have peer-reviewed articles. Many of these databases allow you to limit your search to only peer-reviewed information.

The NC State University Libraries has developed a three-minute video explaining peer review that we highly recommend. Your local library staff can also help you understand this concept.
