You can limit your search in many of the Library's research databases to include only articles from scholarly, peer-reviewed journals.

To limit your search to peer-reviewed articles only, first choose a database. You can find databases listed by subject area through the Articles by Topic page. 

Search Tip: Some databases contain only peer-reviewed journals, while others have both peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed content.  Learn about the peer review status of different databases. 

Once you have logged in to the database, look for a peer review limiter option on the database search page.

Here is an example of the peer-review limiter in Academic Search Complete:
