Determine if an artilce is "peer reviewed" or "scholarly"

Scholarly journals are also called academic, peer-reviewed, or refereed journals. They are journals that submit articles to several other scholars, experts, or academics (peers) in the field for review and comment. These reviewers must agree that the article represents properly conducted original research or writing before it can be published.

What to look for:

  • abstract (descriptive summary)
  • footnotes or bibliographies
  • institutions author(s) are from, ex. universities, research institutions, think tanks 
  • main point is to report on original research or experimentation


American Economic Review

Applied Geography

Archives of Sexual Behavior
