The easiest way to find a peer-reviewed article is by using one of the library databases. All library databases are listed in the Articles & Databases index. The databases are divided by name and discipline. For instance:

  • JSTOR Arts & Sciences
    An archival collection of 175 peer reviewed academic journals in the social sciences, math, and humanities.
  • Academic Search Complete
    This scholarly collection of more than 8,200 publications offers information in nearly every area of academic study, many in full text. Updated daily.            

            In the research databases, there is a Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals limiter that you can
            select to limit your results to peer-reviewed articles only. Scroll down from the search box to limit your
            results. Watch this brief video on  finding peer-reviewed articles
