Peer review

Peer review is part of the publication process of scholarly articles. Professionals and scholars in the field read the manuscript to ensure that it is up to the standards of the journal.

Finding peer reviewed articles can be as simple as checking a box on the search page of the Business Source Complete or ProQuest databases. If you're searching elsewhere and aren't sure whether an article is peer reviewed, your best bet is to go to the journals website (use Google to find it). Editorial policy is usually published under "about us" links or guidelines for authors.
