Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month

This guide serves as an introduction to library resources and information in celebration of Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month.

What is Peer Review?

The peer review process tries to ensure that only the highest quality research is published. When an article is submitted to a peer-reviewed (or refereed) journal, the editor sends it to be reviewed by other scholars (the author's peers) in the same field. These reviewers recommend that the editor reject the paper, accept the paper as is, or accept the paper with author revisions.  

Though trustworthy, peer review is not without flaws. The Retraction Watch blog tracks when published articles are withdrawn due to plagiarism, error, fraud, or other reasons.

How can I tell if a particular journal is peer reviewed?

Search the journal title in the Library’s Journal Titles list. If you don't find it there, search the journal title in Ulrichsweb (the referee’s jersey icon indicates that a title is peer-reviewed). You can also visit the journal’s website. If you have trouble, ask a librarian.
