Although you will be selecting your own criteria when evaluating resources for your literature review, here are some general guidelines when evaluating resources for other projects:
1. Author / Editor
To find out if a journal is peer reviewed, you can either look at a print copy of the journal or find the journal's website and check to see if there is a review process. Another option is to look up the journal in Ulrich's Periodicals Directory to see if the journal is refereed.
