How do I find peer-reviewed journal articles in the library databases?


To search for peer reviewed articles, you will want to search one or more of our Research Databases. To search our databases, you can use our One Search box located on the library homepage or search a specific database from the A-Z Databases page.

Below the search box on the library homepage, there is a "Scholarly (Peer-Reviewed)" check box (see image below). Click that check box, enter your search, and now all your results are peer-reviewed articles.

If you are searching a specific database, you can also filter your results to see only peer-reviewed articles. Depending on the database you are using, there will be a check box that says "Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals" or "Peer Reviewed Journals".

This check box is usually located on the left-hand side of your search results page, but the location of this check box may vary depending on which database you are using. In Gale databases (such as Academic OneFile and Educator's Reference Complete), this check box will appear on the right-hand side of your search results page.
