Q. What are peer reviewed articles and how can I find them?
Peer reviewed articles are found in scholarly journals. They are articles that are reviewed by experts in the field other than the author(s) who ensure that the article is accurate and reliable.
The easiest way to find peer reviewed articles is to use subject databases. On the main library webpage, click on the Library Databases link beneath the search bar. Then click on the drop-down menu labeled "All Database Types" and click Academic/Scholarly, Professional & Trade Journals. This will bring up a list of all of the databases the library has access to that contain journal articles. You can further narrow your search by selecting a subject from the drop-down menu labeled "All Subjects." This method is useful if you want to restrict your search to a specific subject.
