How do you know if an article from a nursing journal is evidence-based and peer-reviewed?

Answer

Most academic journals are peer-reviewed, but not all. Typically you can tell if there are the words "journal," "review," or "quarterly" in the title and if the source of the publication is from an academic source (a university press, for example). However, these are only sometimes clear-cut. 

If you are searching for nursing articles, the CINAHL database can help. You need to do an advanced search, and towards the bottom of the page, select "Peer-reviewed," and under the option Special Interest, select "evidence-based practice." That will give you articles on evidence-based practice from peer-reviewed journals.
