You can limit your search in some databases to only show articles from sources that do not use peer review such as magazines and newspapers.

Here is an example search to find magazine and newspaper articles in ProQuest Central:

  1. On the Library home page, at the top, click on Start Your Research.
  2. In the box on the right, click the link for Newspapers & Magazines
  3. Scroll down to the Search by topic box. Click on ProQuest Central.
  4. Type your keywords into the search boxes, for example:

    First search box:  


    Second search box:  


  5. Scroll down to the Search Options.  Verify the Full Text box is checked.
  6. In the Source Type box, check Magazines and Newspapers.

  7. Click the Search button.


Tip: By default the database displays the search results by relevance.  You may find it useful to view the results by date.  Use the Sort option in the left column to change the sort order to Most recent first.
