How do I find a scholarly or peer-reviewed article?


Try one of these methods to find an article appropriate for academic research:

  • Use a database that indexes primarily scholarly, or refereed, journals such as JSTOR, Project MUSE, or PubMed/MEDLINE
  • Click the checkbox that says Peer Reviewed to limit your search in Academic Search Complete and other databases
