Food and Nutrition Databases

Below are a sample of databases owned by the University of Idaho library, related to the subject of Food and Nutrition. For a full list of databases, visit Finding Articles.


Is my Article Peer Reviewed?

1. Check if your journal is peer reviewed

  • Search for your title in Ulrich's Global Serials Directory
  • When you find your journal, look for a "referee shirt" symbol.  The symbol will appear next to any journal title that is peer reviewed and/or refereed (interchangeable terms).


2. If the journal is peer reviewed, then assess the article

  • Is it a full research article?  If your article is a short news brief, an editorial, a letter to the editor, or a re-print of a conference proceeding, it is not peer reviewed.
