Classical Studies: Journals

Resources to assist students and faculty in the Classical Studies Minor

Peer-Reviewed Journals

Peer-reviewed journals, also known as Refereed Journals or Scholarly Journals, are...

  • scholarly journals with articles that have been critically evaluated and approved by several scholars (expert peer-reviewers) before inclusion in a journal, not just by an editor.
  • reviewed by peers to assess the quality of the methodology, data, and conclusions presented.


Peer review lends credibility to the article because the process confirms the reliability of the data and the findings of the research.
