What is the definition of peer review for the CINAHL products?

CINAHL defines peer review to include the following below. Generally speaking, peer reviewed means that there has been some degree of peer review process for the publication.

  • Blind peer review (when either the reviewer or the author does not know the identity of the other)

  • Double-blind peer review (when neither the author nor the reviewer knows the identity of the other)

  • Expert peer review (when journal articles are reviewed by selected experts in that field)

  • Editorial board peer review (when journal articles are reviewed by the editorial board)

CINAHL may also consider the title peer-reviewed if the title is viewed as such by the publisher.
