What is Peer-Review?

Produced by NC State Libraries

Developing a Topic

Articles used for this research assignment must come from peer-reviewed journals.  It can take up to several years for a researcher to conduct their research of a particular topic, phenomena or event, record their findings, and then have it accepted by an academic journal for publication.  If you choose a relatively new topic related to immigration you may have trouble finding peer-reviewed articles on that topic.
