Evaluating your resources

Use the "CRAAP" Test criteria to evaluate the information that you find in print and on websites!  If the information doesn't pass the test, you probably should not use it as a source.

How can I tell if an article is peer reviewed?

Ulrich's Periodical Directory can tell you if the journal that your article comes from is peer reviewed (also called "referred").

Look up the journal title Ulrich's. Remember that you are searching for the journal that the article comes from, not the article itself.

You can tell from Ulrich's that the journal is peer reviewed because it has a little referee's jersey beside it in the listing.
