Peer Review

What is "Peer Review"?  - An evaluation of scientific or academic work by experts in the same field.

Peer review process:

  • Authors submit manuscripts to journals
  • Journals enlist other impartial subject experts to review the manuscript
  • Subject experts evaluate the manuscripts for accuracy and quality by analyzing research methodology
  • Those manuscripts that don't meet the quality and accuracy standards set by the journal/reviewers are returned to the authors for editing. If they don't meet set standards for rigor or methodology, they can be rejected.

How to determine if a journal is peer reviewed:

  • CINAHL has a Peer Review limiter that will include articles from only those journals that are deteremined to be peer reviewed.
  • Check the "Journal Info" or "About This Journal" page of a journal's website. If the journal is peer reviewed, the website usually mentions it.
