How is the designation “Peer Reviewed/Scholarly” determined? Is that designation being applied to non-EBSCO sources?

By December 2010 EBSCO will have classified peer reviewed status for more than 100,000 journals including non-EBSCO sources. For EBSCO databases, our Database Product Management department determines and assigns peer-reviewed status to a publication. When a publication is assigned a peer-reviewed status, it is applied to all content in the entire date range of the publication; therefore any issues published before a the title attained peer-reviewed status is flagged as peer-reviewed. EBSCO Peer-Review Guidelines are available at
