You can quickly find detailed information about a journal by searching the database Ulrichsweb.

Ulrichsweb is an easy to search source of detailed information on more than 300,000 periodicals (also called serials) of all types covering 900+ subject areas. Ulrich's records provide data points such as

  • ISSN
  • publisher
  • language
  • subject
  • abstracting & indexing coverage
  • full-text database coverage

It is particularly useful for determining whether a journal is peer reviewed. In Ulrichsweb this is called 'refereed.':

  • search for your journal by name or ISSN
  • look for an icon which looks like a black and white sports referee's jacket next to your journal's name to see if it is refereed (peer reviewed). Clicking on the name of your journal will show you more detailed information.

Access Ulrichsweb from the link below, or through the Database Finder tool on the Library website.
