Finding Articles

"Peer-reviewed [refereed] journals are publications that include only those articles that have been reviewed and/or qualified by a selected panel of acknowledged experts in the field of study covered by the journal" (Ebsco Help).

  • JSTOR and Science Direct only contain scholarly publications. For the other databases, make sure that you limit the databases to peer-reviewed.
Note: There are many strong journals that specialize in a particular geographical region or subject area.
