Complete the following tutorial: Introduction to Ulrich's

Some databases allow you to limit your search to peer-reviewed journals. For other databases, look up the title of the journal in Ulrich's Directory.

1. Go to Ulrich's:  Click to open Ulrich's.

2. Type the JOURNAL TITLE (not the article title) into the search box, and click the green search button.   Look for the JOURNAL TITLE in your search results.  (e.g. Journal of Infections Diseases)

3. In the search results, look for a referee jersey icon to indicate that a journal is refereed. Refereed means the same as peer reviewed.

REMEMBER:   It's the JOURNAL that's peer reviewed/refereed, so you are looking for the JOURNAL TITLE in your search results, NOT the article title.
