A peer-reviewed article is one that is written by an expert in the field that the subject of the article is written on, and that has been reviewed by other experts within the same subject field before publication. This ensures that the article has been thoroughly reviewed for accuracy. Peer-reviewed articles are also referred to as “scholarly” or “refereed”. They can be asserted as peer-reviewed by the location of a DOI number associated with the journal issue that the article was found in.
Finding peer reviewed articles on the open web can be challenging, as many of these publisher sites require subscriptions to access scholarly content. FSU Libraries provides access to vast peer-reviewed sources through our subscriptions to databases, journals, and more - all available to our students, faculty, and staff through our library website.
