Limiting your Search to Peer-Reviewed Articles

Most research databases allow you to limit your results to articles published in peer reviewed journals. Usually there is a checkbox labeled “Scholarly" or "Peer Reviewed Journals” - or, in some cases, "Refereed". Check this box, enter your search terms and click search. The results should all be peer reviewed.
