Applied Psychology Journals
Many of your assignments require the use peer-reviewed sources. What does that mean?
- Peer-reviewed sources are articles that are published in peer-reviewed journals and have gone through the peer-review process. Before a peer-reviewed journal publishes an article, the editor submits it to the author's peers (other experts in the same field) to be reviewed for accuracy, reliability, and the quality of its research, and the article will often go through several rounds of reviews before approval..
Where can you find peer-reviewed articles?
- Adler University Library databases. Check the box on the database search screen that allows you to limit your search to only peer-reviewed articles.
- Unsure if the database you're using has peer-reviewed articles, or don't know how to limit your search? Contact the Library.
- Books aren't peer-reviewed. Neither are web sites, but some may publish peer-reviewed articles. If you're not sure if something you find online is peer-reviewed, contact the Library.
