Finding Peer Reviewed Journal Articles

To find scholarly articles, note the following:

  • For LION OneSearch & Academic Search Complete, use the check box for Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals
  • Most JSTOR items are scholarly.

A scholarly article is most often written by a person with academic credentials in the discipline. The article may or may not be peer reviewed. And remember that peer reviewed journals also contain content that does not meet the criteria for being peer reviewed such as letters and book reviews. When in doubt, ask Dr. Heller.

Google Scholar

In addition to our subscription databases, Google Scholar has quality sources including full text journal articles in all disciplines.


Searching for social, ethical and economic issues includes concepts like quality of life, employment, genetic screening, counseling, coping behavior, costs, etc

PLEASE NOTE: This is not an exhaustive list of all the databases provided by the library.  If you are not finding what you need, please ask for help from me or at the Reference Desk.
