Q: Where can I find peer reviewed articles?
Answered by: Laura Sider

To find scholarly, peer reviewed articles when using library resources - such as Quicksearch Articles+ or a subject-specific database - you will generally have the option to filter for peer-reviewed articles.

  • After conducting a search, look for a filter labeled "peer-reviewed" or "scholarly." See below for examples.

Note: if you're in a database (such as JSTOR or ScienceDirect) and do not see a filter for "peer-reviewed" or "scholarly," it may mean that the resource is entirely made up of scholarly content or because scholarly does not apply to the content included (such as in a database like Artstor).

Good to know: Google Scholar does not provide the option to filter for peer reviewed content because not everything in Google Scholar is scholarly.
