SOWK 2013 Introduction to Social Work: Articles/Databases

Peer Reviewed Resources

Scholarly Sources are those that have gone through the process of being reviewed by other established scholars in that field. 


Professional Sources are those that are written by professionals in a field but have not been reviewed by other professionals in the field. 


A way to be absolutely sure an article is from a peer-reviewed journal is to look in the database, UlrichsWeb (see link below). When you find your journal in UlrichsWeb, make sure there is a referee jersey icon associated with the title.
