  • Peer Review
    Author Peer Reviewed Articles Research Articles Review Articles Articles from a Journal Articles on a Topic Peer Reviewed Journals What Does Peer Reviewed or Refereed Mean Peer Review is a process that journals use to ensure the articles they publish represent the best scholarship currently available When an article is submitted to a peer reviewed journal the editors send it out to other scholars in the same field the author s peers to get their opinion on the quality of the scholarship its relevance to the field its appropriateness for the journal etc Publications that don t use peer review Time Cosmo Salon just rely on the judgement of the editors whether an article is up to snuff or not That s why you can t count on them for solid scientific scholarship Note This is an entirely different concept from Review Articles How do I know if a journal is peer reviewed Usually you can tell just by looking A scholarly journal is visibly different from other magazines but occasionally it can be hard to tell or you just want to be extra certain In that case you turn to Ulrich s Periodical Directory Online Just type the journal

  • Creating Effective Research Assignments | University of Texas at Austin Libraries
    Visit Home Library Services Teaching Learning Services Creating Effective Research Assignments Teaching and Learning Services Home Contact Us Creating Effective Research Assignments Understand the skill level of your students and recognize that they may not know how to perform the level of research you require If this is the case librarians are available to help Always define your terms For example if you require peer reviewed articles tell your students what these are Don t assign scavenger hunts They are not effective in teaching students how to do research In addition students can easily cheat on these types of assignments If you assign your entire class research on the same narrow topic the library may not have many resources on that topic Instead ask your students to choose and focus their own topics which they often find the most difficult part of doing research Create assignments that are relevant to class content and will help students do the research needed for other class assignments For example assign an annotated bibliography leading up to a research paper Focus on content rather than format For example a lot of scholarly journals are now only available online through subscription databases Create assignments that require students to choose the best tools to use for their research problem If you do give them a list of tools to use make sure that they understand what these tools do and why they are effective for this research problem Avoid a run on a resource Do not send all of your students to the same limited resource Before suggesting a resource check with a librarian to be sure it is still available There may also be new resources better suited to your assignment Create assignments that require students to evaluate the information they find Test your assignment
