Journal Rankings


A to Z Journal List

The A to Z Journal List should be consulted whenever you have been given a journal citation and you want to determine if the Evans Library can provide you with the full-text of the article the citation represents.

It is also the place you should check before submitting an interlibrary loan request for a periodical article.

Peer-reviewed Journals

In physics and space sciences, peer-reviewed journals represent the highest quality information that can be consulted to advance your research.  Peer-reviewed journal articles are the primary method for publishing new information in science, including biology.  Sometimes peer-reviewed is called refereed and sometimes scholarly journals.


To test whether a journal is designated as peer-reviewed (or refereed) use Ulrichsweb.  Find the Ulrichsweb database in the Evans Library Databases/Indexes list at or use the link below:


You can also use the link to Ulrichsweb in the box to the left.
