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 see only peer-reviewed sources in your results list.  Look for this in the Advanced Search screen and on the left-hand side of the search results list.


For help in locating peer-reviewed sources, please visit our How do I Locate Peer Reviewed Sources guide (coming soon!) or schedule an appointment with a research coach.
