  • A peer review is evaluation of a person's work or performance by a group of people in the same occupation, profession, or industry. A referee is an authority who evaluates scientific, technical, or scholarly papers, grant proposals, or the like for the publication or funding institution to which they have been submitted. Peer review or refereeing is the accepted method for ensuring that information is of the highest quality.Peer review does not ensure perfect information. Not everything in a journal is peer-reviewed, but most articles are.
  • Go to catalog and show subject headings!
  • One good way to find good, reputable sources is by using a works cited from a good, reputable source! All it takes is one or two solid articles and you’re on your way!
