Scholarly/Peer-Reviewed FAQ

What are "scholarly" or "peer-reviewed" articles?

  • Author is usually expert in the field/discipline
  • Content has been critically evaluated by other experts
  • Information sources used by author are cited (works cited, bibliography or footnotes)

How can I find "scholarly" or "peer-reviewed" articles?

Many of the research databases listed on the left may include all scholarly material (JSTOR, Sage) or an option to limit your search to only scholarly/peer-reviewed articles. Scan the database's search page for this limit option.
