How do I find peer-reviewed articles?
Peer review means the publications are evaluated by qualified professionals to determine the accuracy of the information and the methods used. The library databases have both peer-reviewed and non-peer reviewed publications.
To search for only peer-reviewed articles in the databases:
- Start your search from the library homepage.
- Enter your keywords into the search field under the Search Everything Tab, and hit search.
- Look on the left side of the search results page, and select Academic (Peer-Reviewed) Journals under the Limit To section.
To determine if a journal is peer-reviewed:
- Enter the name of the journal into Google or another search engine.
- Select the journal's website from the search results.
- Locate the About Us, About, or For Authors page on their website to find a mention of their peer-reviewed process if one is used.
