  5. 5. Some preliminary questions 1. What is a peer-reviewed article? 2. How do I know if an article is peer reviewed?
  6. 6. What is a peer-reviewed article? Scholarly/peer-reviewed/refereed papers are reviewed by experts (peers) in very specific fields to ensure that:  The paper is based on original research  Research is performed using proper and rigorous scientific methodology  The paper adds to the body of knowledge. Peer-reviewed publications are considered to be of the highest quality for academic research.
  7. 7. How do I know an article is peer- reviewed? A good starting point: Check to see if the journal in which the article was published uses peer-review.
  8. 8. Does the journal use peer- review? Check Ulrichsweb Search for the journal name (e.g. Nature or Science) Look for a referee jersey next to the journal’s name (remember, peer- reviewed articles are also called “refereed” articles)
  9. 9. If a journal uses peer-review, is everything in the journal peer-reviewed? Not necessarily! ○ Even if a journal uses peer review, it may publish content that is not peer-reviewed. ○ For example, Letters to the Editor are (typically) not peer-reviewed; neither are book reviews. Therefore, examine the article to see if it has the characteristics of a peer-reviewed article.
  10. 10. What are the characteristics of a peer-reviewed article?  If your article was published in a journal that uses peer-review, you now need to establish whether the article has characteristics typical of a peer-reviewed article.  Characteristics may relate to:  The article title  The publication in which the article was published.  Author information  Submission versus publication dates  Article sections ○ For example, Abstract, Introduction, Literature Search, Arguments, Methodology, Results, Conclusions, References  Charts, Graphs, and Equations  The text (e.g. types of nomenclature).  Not every peer-reviewed paper will share every one of these characteristics.  However, they should have many of them.
  11. 11. Peer-reviewed article: The Title Title: may summarize the article’s contents, and will usually contain technical terms that are specific to the subject of the research. 2 articles about parrotfish Not peer- reviewed Peer- reviewed
  12. 12. Peer-reviewed article: The Authors Authors Credentials Contact Information
  13. 13. Peer-reviewed article: Submission and Publication Dates Submission & Publication Dates: Provide a history of when the paper was first received, accepted and published. Reflects the time required for the peer-review process to take place. Initial Submittal Revised Paper Submittal Paper Accepted Paper Published Approximately 11 months (in this case)
  14. 14. Peer-reviewed article: The Publication Publication: Provides the title of the journal in which the article was published, as well as the volume/issue numbers, page numbers, etc. (needed to write a citation for the article)
  15. 15. Peer-reviewed article: The Abstract Abstract: Briefly summarizes the contents of the article (useful for quickly establishing whether the article pertains to your research)
  16. 16. Peer-reviewed article: The Introduction Introduction: Addresses the topic or problem being addressed by the research, as well as the contexts and reasons for the research. Introductions may include literature reviews, although these may also appear as separate sections.
  17. 17. Peer-reviewed article: Charts, Graphs, Images and Equations related to data
  18. 18. Peer-reviewed article: Charts, Graphs, Images and Equations related to data
  19. 19. Peer-reviewed article: Charts, Graphs, Images and Equations related to data
  20. 20. Peer-reviewed article: The Text Article Text: In addition to the Introduction, sections may include a Literature Review, Arguments, Experimental Methods, Results and Conclusions. The text will often be highly technical and use terminology unfamiliar to the general public.
  21. 21. Peer-reviewed article: The Conclusion Conclusion: Summarizes the results of the research
  22. 22. Peer-reviewed article: The References References: Lists each of the articles cited by the author(s).
