What Does "Peer Reviewed" or "Refereed" Mean?
Peer Review is a process that journals use to ensure the articles they publish represent the best scholarship currently available. When an article is submitted to a peer-reviewed journal, the journal's editors send it out to other scholars in the same field (the author's peers) to get their opinion on the quality of the scholarship, its relevance to the field, its appropriateness for the journal, etc. Publications that don't use peer review (i.e. Time, Newsweek, or Psychology Today) simply rely on the judgment of the editors as to whether an article meets the publication's standards.
This button provides direct links from the NEIU Libraries' databases to online full-text articles, when available. If the full text of an article is not available online, request a copy of the article through WorldShare interlibrary loan.
Or search for a specific journal by Title or ISSN.
NEIU's Student Code of Conduct defines plagiarism as "Appropriation or imitation of the language, ideas, and thoughts of another author and representation of them as one’s original work. This includes (1) paraphrasing another’s ideas or conclusions without acknowledgement; (2) lifting of entire paragraphs, chapters, etc. from another’s work; and (3) submission as one’s own work, any work prepared by another person or agency."
