Peer-Reviewed Articles

What Are Peer-Reviewed Articles?
As part of the publication process, articles in scholarly journals are reviewed by committees of other notable scholars. Such reviewers are considered to be the writer's peers.

Finding Peer-Reviewed Articles?

When searching for articles in a general database look for the "limit your search" options. Most databases provide "limit to peer-reviewd journals" option.

Find Articles

Use the Library databases to search for articles. Databases collect and index a big number of journals running through long time periods. They offer searching features that help you find what you need using and combining keywords, limiting your search by type of publication or date and other search techniques.

In most cases you can access the articles in full text, or link to the full text from a different source.
