"Refereed" or "Peer-Reviewed" Journals

"Peer review" is the process through which experts in a field of study examine and assess the quality of articles before they are published.  Peer review insures that the research described in a journal's articles is sound and of high quality.

Sometimes the term "refereed" is used instead of peer reviewed.

You can identify Peer reviewed journals in the following sources:

Electronic Journals

We subscribe to and have access to many e- Journals, which you can access via the databases. Use the A-Z Full-text finder to find out if the journal you want to access is available full-text.

Print Journals

There are very few print journals available anymore. We do have back copies in the Library of SportBusiness International, which you can browse through in the Mowbray Campus Library. You can see the Library's holdings via the catalogue.
