Steps to Find Peer-Reviewed Articles
Peer-reviewed articles have been reviewed by a panel of experts in the field in which the article was written. Many academic journals require that articles be peer-reviewed before they are published. To find peer-reviewed articles, follow the same steps as above but also check off the peer-reviewed checkbox on the search page. Different databases providers show this checkbox in different areas of the page. Here are screenshots of the peer-reviewed checkbox in databases from EBSCOhost and ProQuest.
