Peer Reviewed or Refeered

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. Peer-reviewed journals often have low acceptance rates. Peer-reviewed journals are viewed as respected and credible sources of information. 

To find peer reviewed articles within WPI Library Search, enter your keywords and then select the filter for "Peer-reviewed Journals" on the left.
