Making the peer reviewed icon more accurate
Articles and journals are marked with the peer reviewed icon in Primo based on information extracted from Ulrichsweb (https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Ulrich%27s/ProductDocumentation/Searching/Ulrichsweb%3APeer-ReviewedRefereedJournalsandAcademicScholarlyJournals).
The Peer Review indicator can only be set at the journal level at the moment. If a journal is identified as peer reviewed, or refereed in Ulrichsweb, all articles from this journal will be shown with the peer reviewed icon in Primo.
However, not all articles in such journals are peer reviewed, meaning the icon sends the wrong information to user, and that this label is not reliable. It can further cause users to lose confidence in the system.
We would like Ex Libris to work on a solution to extract the peer review information individually from each resource, in order to avoid having book reviews, editorials, or simply non peer-reviewed articles being marked as such in Primo.

Users should be searching databases for peer reviewed articles because you still have to have a database subscription for them to obtain it. Other issues like EXACT SEARCH for ADVANCED SEARCH deserve more attention.
