Finding articles in scholarly/peer-reviewed journals:

Many of the Library's article databases allow you to limit the search results to peer-reviewed or scholarly articles by:

  • checking the box "Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals" under limit or refine search.
  • clicking on the tab "Scholarly Journals" or "Academic Journals" while viewing results of a search.


Keep in mind, even though a particular journal is peer reviewed, an individual item in that journal may not be. Some article types, e.g. news items, comments, editorials, may not have gone through the peer review process. Scholarly articles are generally several pages long.
