Peer Review is a process ensures that articles published in a journal represent the best scholarship available.
When an article is submitted, the journal editors send it out to other scholars in the same field (i.e., the author's peers) to get their opinion on the quality and relevance to the field of study, and the appropriateness to the journal itself.
Most databases provide some way to distinguish whether the citation is to a peer-reviewed (or refereed) journal. It is often a check box or radio button.
All web-based resources from our Library are available campuswide. Off campus access is available for most restricted e-resources via the Library web site. When you click on a restricted link from off campus, you will be prompted to enter the Library barcode from the back of your ID.
Be sure that your Library registration is up to date and that there are no blocks on your account. The most common reasons for a block are fines over $5 or an improper email address.
Due to licensing restrictions, you are not allowed to use their resources unless you are physically at NYU or the New School. If you are asked to input a NetID, you are not on their campuses.
