Where Do I Look for Peer-Reviewed Articles?

Most of our databases allow users to limit their searches to "scholarly" or  "peer-reviewed" journals. An alphabetical listing of the Library's databases is on the Library Home Page under Find; then Databases. Select a database to search, then limit the search by clicking on the check box that allows for limiting the search to scholarly (Peer-reviewed journals). Some advance searches allow you to limit your search to document type too.
