Google Scholar and Peer-Reviewed Articles

The best way to know if a journal found in Google Scholar is peer reviewed is to follow these steps:
1. Note the name of the journal from the citation.  2. Type the name "in quotes," into the regular version of Google in order to find that journal's homepage.  TIP: Journals typically state the fact that they are "peer reviewed" (also known as “refereed” or “juried” or "blind reviewed."  If, in the description, none of those words are used then you can be sure it is not "peer reviewed."
