Need to use peer-reviewed articles in your work?

Have your lecturers recommended that you use peer-reviewed sources for your assignments?  Peer-reviewed articles are an excellent source of information for your studies.

Peer-reviewed articles are articles that have been reviewed by experts in the subject.  When the editor of a peer-reviewed journal receives an article, they ask other scholars in the field to review it.  The article is reviewed for academic quality, accuracy and relevance.  Articles which do not meet the necessary standard are returned to the author for revision.

When you use peer-reviewed articles in your assignments, you are using information of a high academic quality.

So, how do you find peer-reviewed articles?
When you search for information on the ITB Online Library (via One Search), you can limit your results to peer-reviewed articles.
