(Cornell University, 2019) Publishers that do not use peer-review solely rely on the editors to determine if the information is accurate or not, which makes them less worthy for credible information. (University of Texas, n.d.) Learning to analyze research articles is key to providing reliable and accurate information. (Smith, 2009.)A few strategies I found helpful in finding peer-reviewed articles were first, is the article published in a scholarly journal? Secondly, looking at the publication details of the article can tell you if it is peer-reviewed or not. Another great way to determine if an article is scholarly and peer-reviewed is to look it up in Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory. Ulrich’s is a huge database that gives information on articles, those that are peer-reviewed will say “refereed” to help distinguish. (Ulrich’s)One strategy I plan to use in the future is to utilize the library at Walden. I like that youcan specify to only have peer-reviewed articles populate in the search. It is also useful
in finding the most current and up to date information because you can search the year of publication. References:Angelo State University. (n.d.) How to recognize peer-reviewed (refereed) journals.
