Many academic journals are peer-reviewed, which means that articles submitted by authors and researchers are checked for accuracy, purpose and clarity by a panel of experts. They may be redrafted and reviewed again before they are eventually published. This process means that the information in the article should be reliable and high quality.

When using Library Search to find articles you can limit your search to peer reviewed articles by choosing the 'Peer Reviewed' option on the left hand side of the results screen.
