Psychology: Peer-review - how to judge

Quick Guide: Peer Review - How to Judge

Click on the PDF link above for a simple, one-page chart listing four primary characteristics of a peer reviewed journal article or scholarly book chapter.  The chart suggests ways in which you may judge whether an article meets each criteria.  These characterists may also be applied when evaluating a book chapter in an edited book.  This is not a definitive guide - when in doubt, always consult your professor or contact the library reference desk (see the Need Help tab at the top of this subject guide for a variety of ways to contact a reference librarian).
