I am looking for peer-reviewed articles.

A peer-reviewed article has been reviewed by other experts or scholars in the field for quality and originality. To determine if an article is peer-reviewed:

Learn more about the journal your article was published in.

  • If you are in a database, clicking on the journal title may give you more information about the journal.
     
  • Search online for the title of the journal and look for an editorial policy page or a page for authors. This will tell you whether the journal uses a peer review process.

In most databases you can limit your search to only peer-reviewed articles.

  • Look for a link or checkbox that limits a search to scholarly (peer-reviewed) article.
