What are "peer reviewed or "refereed" journals?
A peer reviewed journal is a special type of publication. Before articles are published within these types of journals, they are sent by the editors of the journal to other scholars in the field ("peers"), often anonymously, to get feedback on the quality of the scholarship, review research methods, as well as relevance or importance to the field. The article may be accepted, often with revisions suggested, or rejected for publication.
Considered the most respected, researchers wish to have their works published in them. Many often have low acceptance rates.
To find peer reviewed articles within Summon, notice the option to Limit to articles from peer-reviewed publication.
Looking for just Books and eBooks?
Use the Content Type and/or Library Location limiters.
Add References to a Folder & Save to Email or Import to Citation Builders
You can tag items and save then to a temporary folder in order to email them or easily export them to citation builders like EndNote Web.
Keep current with research on your favorite topics by using RSS feeds. Once you do a search and narrow it to your specifications, use the RSS button to add it to your favorite RSS reader. You will then be notified anytime research on that topic is added to Summon.
Undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, staff and professional researchers will find Summon to be a valuable first place to look for articles, books and other research.
Some researchers will want to delve deeper into the research using databases for their subject area, especially for Chemistry or Chemical Engineering. You can also schedule a meeting with a librarian for one-on-one research assistance.
