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

If you use our library databases, you will (generally) have the option to filter for peer-reviewed articles. After you have conducted a search, you should see a filter for "peer-reviewed" content on the results page. Here are some examples in two of our databases:

In Academic Search Premier


In Search Articles +


Please note, if you're in a library resource and do NOT see a 'peer review' or "scholarly' filter (like in JSTOR, ScienceDirect and Springerlink), it may mean that the resource is entirely made up of scholarly content.

Remember:Google Scholar does not give you the option to filter for peer reviewed content because not everything in Google Scholar is scholarly.
