When looking for peer reviewed articles, please first make sure to understand what makes a peer review article. The library has information in the FAQ about this.

Once you understand what a peer review article is, it is easy to make sure you are getting articles from peer reviewed journals. Most of the library's databases have what are called "limiters" on the left side of the screen after you submit a search. This limiters will usually include things like "Full Text" and "Scholarly Peer Reviewed". By checking this boxes in EBSCO and/or Gale, you are guaranteeing that you are going to get articles from peer reviewed journals. However, please remember that this does not mean the articles are always suited for citation and you must evaluate all sources for their credibility.
