Academic and Trade Journals. Find the most up-to-date information and research in a given field or industry. These journal articles can include literature reviews, research summaries and analysis, and theoretical discussions.
Peer-Reviewed Articles. Academic journals often use the peer-review process to vet articles for publication. Field experts evaluate scholarly articles for accuracy, research methods, and interpretations of data.
To find a peer-reviewed article while searching databases, limit the results only to peer-reviewed publications by choosing search options like "Scholarly" or "Peer Reviewed".
Another method for locating peer-reviewed articles is to use Ulrich's Periodicals Directory, an authoritative source for information about periodicals. First, search for the journal title. Then, look for the referee jersey icon to see whether or not the journal is peer reviewed.
