Q. is uptodate.com considered a peer reviewed journal?

Answer

UpToDate is a Database, not a journal. Indexed within the UpToDate Database are topic reviews intended to help physicians make point of care dicisions. The topic reviews are not journal articles and are not peer reviewed. You can certainly cite a topic review in your paper, but if you are required to have a certian number of peer reviewed articles, I would not use the topic review as one of them.
