TILE Finale

Sometimes your professor will tell you to find articles from an academic or scholarly journal. Those are other names for peer-reviewed journals.

A peer-reviewed journal is a research oriented journal where all the articles that are submitted for publication are reviewed by experts in the field. These reviewers determine if the articles meet the journal's standards which are usually based on the scope of the journal, the caliber of writing, and the quality and originality of research. Most peer-reviewed journals have a high rejection rate so the articles published in a peer-reviewed journal are of the highest quality.

To search only for articles in peer-reviewed, simply mark the check box titled "Peer Reviewed" on ERIC's search page.
