Visit the Library's help guide for finding articles for information on searching for peer reviewed articles. Many databases will allow users to limit to peer reviewed or scholarly sources from their initial search screen. Others provide the ability to limit results to peer reviewed once a search has been conducted. This check box is usually found in a menu located alongside the search results.

If a database does not allow you to limit results, use the database Ulrichsweb to search for the journal title to determine if it is peer-reviewed.
