What is Peer-Review?

Scholarly journals published by professional associations or a university press will have a panel of scholars who evaluate articles submitted for publication. In other words, these editorial panels are comprised of the author's peers.

If an article is approved for publication the panel has agreed that the article will advance the thinking within the discipline. Thus, articles accepted for publication would then be considered peer reviewed.

Where is the Article?

Use the databases shown here to find references to articles about your topic.

To get to the full-text of the article, click on the Find it @ New Paltz button next to the reference. 

No Find it @ New Paltz button? Some databases, instead, show their own links to the html or pdf versions.

If there are no links (and no Find it @ New Paltz), then copy down the bibliographic information (author, journal title, year, volume, pages) and search our journals to see if we have a print version of the journal.

If we don't have access to an article,  you can request a copy through Interlibrary Loan.
