Measuring the quality of a journal article

There are several ways in which you can measure the quality of a journal article. This includes:

  • viewing the article's citation counts on Scopus, Web of Science or Google Scholar
  • checking if the journal article is peer reviewed by using a list or the databases
  • viewing lists of journal rankings

How to find peer reviewed journal articles

Peer reviewed journals only publish articles that have been reviewed and critiqued by a panel of subject experts. You can find peer reviewed articles by looking in lists or on databases.

Lists: use the Ulrichsweb: Global Serials Directory or the Cabell's Business Directories to check if your journal is peer reviewed.

Databases: do a search on a database for your particular topic. Limit your results to scholarly or peer reviewed. You will then see a list of peer reviewed journals in your subject area. You may wish to sort your results by journal name (sometimes known as source) to make your results  easier to view.

TIP: Look at the UniSA Library's How to find peer reviewed journal articles guide.
