At university you are expected to read widely and often you will be required to use both 'Academic or Scholarly', and 'Peer reviewed' journal articles for your assessment tasks.
The tutorials and videos below will help you to:
- Identify the features of a Scholarly journal article to ensure you are using appropriate resources for your assessment tasks.
- Understand the concept of 'Peer review' or 'Refereed' journals. This type of journal is a high quality source of academic information.
- Learn how to search Ulrichsweb to check the journal you are using is 'Peer reviewed'. This is important if the Library database you found the journal article doesn't allow you to limit to 'peer reviewed' or 'refereed' journals.
