Where can I find peer-reviewed articles?

The best place to look for peer-reviewed articles is in the library’s databases.  From the library’s homepage, you can search multiple databases simultaneously by selecting Articles from the drop down menu and entering a keyword into the search box.

You can easily limit your search results to peer-reviewed articles by choosing Peer-reviewed journals under the Availability section . Look for this option in the upper left hand side of your search results screen. You’ll need to click the green box at the bottom of the screen that says “Apply Filters”.

For more options and specific library databases, mouse over the Search_&_Find tab and click on All Sources. Many of the library’s databases including Academic Search Complete and ProQuest Research Library have their own peer-reviewed check-boxes. Science Direct does not have a check-box, because EVERYTHING you find in Science Direct is peer-reviewed!
