Ask A Librarian Featured Question: March 2021All Libraries, Ask a Librarian Posted: March 17th, 2021
Our featured question this month is: “How do I find peer reviewed articles?”
There’s lots of options to use. In the center of the library homepage, you can use QuickSearch, search using the Articles tab, or the Database button to select a specific database that covers your subject area.
QuickSearch searches many of our databases. Enter in your search terms, search, and on left side of the screen select Scholarly Journals/Peer Reviewed. This option does pull from all Libraries’ resources, not just articles.
The Articles tab works similarly to QuickSearch but limits the search to articles only with a default selection of “Full Text Online.” You can even limit by publication date.
Database search screens may look different. Look over the page to find the Peer Reviewed option.
We have a Peer Reviewed or Refereed Scholarly Journals guide that explains what peer reviewed and scholarly articles are and suggests databases used to find them.
You can view this short video from UCF Libraries “How to Find Peer-Reviewed Journal Articles” that contains what peer reviewed articles are and how to search for them here:
