You can check to see if a journal uses peer review by searching the Ulrich's Periodicals Directory for the journal title.
Note: Search for the title of the journal, not your article. We want to know whether the journal uses peer review for the articles it publishes or not.
Here are the steps to search Ulrich's Periodicals Directory:
2. Click the Verify Peer Review link in the menu on the left.
3. Enter the journal title in the search box.
4. Click Search and find your journal in the search results. Look for the refereed icon, shaped like an umpire's jersey, to the left of the journal name. This symbol indicates the journal is peer reviewed. Refereed is another term for peer reviewed.
Watch the video to see how to how verifying peer review is done.
