Q. How do I locate peer reviewed (refereed) sources?


Peer Reviewed Sources

A peer-reviewed source, also known as a refereed source, is one that has gone through an extensive peer-evaluation process prior to publication in an academic or scholarly journal. These sources are typically published by university presses or highly respected journals.

Locating Peer Reviewed Sources

To locate peer-reviewed sources, most databases have a search limiter that allows you to select that you only want to see peer-reviewed sources in your results list using the Advanced Search screen or by using the limiters available on the left-hand side of the search results list.


For help in locating peer-reviewed sources, please visit the Tutorials & Workshops webpage or schedule an appointment with a research coach.
