How do I tell if a periodical is refereed or peer-reviewed?

A peer-reviewed (or refereed) journal only publishes articles that meet the approval of one or more experts in the field. They typically offer high quality, scholarly research. To find out if a specific periodical is peer-reviewed, click on the link to Ulrich's next to the title in Periodical Locator. Ulrich's will offer information about the title including whether or not it is peer reviewed and where it is indexed. If you can't find a title in Periodical Locator, link directly to and search for it there.
