Publishing your research
Is this a peer-reviewed source?
- Most journals published by professional societies (e.g. ACS, RSC) are peer-reviewed. The Swain Library Journals List includes publishers. For a list of profesional societies by subject area, please see Scholarly Societies Project.
- Use "Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" online. The black and white-striped referee's shirt icon represents peer-review.
- Limit your database search to peer-reviewed journals only (available in some databases only, not available in the Web of Science).
- Look on the journal homepage or the print journal for "peer review" information.
- Check with a librarian.
