A scholarly article, sometimes also called a peer-reviewed, refereed or academic article, is written by an expert and contains in-depth research. Many articles with this designation have gone through the peer review process, meaning they have been evaluated by other experts in the field for accuracy before publication.
The best place to start your search for a scholarly article is from the Libraries' homepage, www.lib.miamioh.edu. Use the "Articles & More" tab. After your search results load, check the box for "Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals" to limit your results to scholarly articles. This searches all 100+ EBSCOhost databases that the Libraries subscribe to. Academic Search Complete is one of those EBSCOhost databases, which you can also search individually (see link below).
