Finding peer-reviewed articles

One other way to check for peer-review is to do a CINAHL database search. If the title is peer-reviewed, it is assigned to the Peer-Review subset. Because the CINAHL producers are concerned about what is meant when a journal claims peer-review, they established additional subsets designating the type of peer-review in 2001: BP Blind Peer Reviewed / EB Editorial Board Reviewed / XP Expert Peer Reviewed

Tip sheets for CINAHL and MEDLINE indexing practices are available online here. The EBSCO Academic collections also indicate peer review status – Peg Allen, Library Consultant.
