Q. Can you give me step by step instructions on how to locate a peer reviewed article?
Here are step-by-step instructions for finding a peer-reviewed article:
- Start at the Online Resources page.
- Click on a subject area that matches the topic (Ex: Health Sciences or Business)
- Choose a database.
Note: Look for ones with ProQuest or EBSCO in the name of the database--these databases have an option to limit your search to scholarly articles.
- Log in with your library card number.
- Enter keywords in the search box(es).
- Find the checkbox labeled, peer-reviewed or scholarly. This will usually be located below the search box, but are sometimes is under Advanced Search.
All the articles you find this way will be considered scholarly.
IMPORTANT: Stay away from Editorials, Letters to the Editor, Book Reviews and similar items. THESE ARE NOT CONSIDERED PEER REVIEWED parts of the journal.
