  • Use the limiting features available in many databases to limit the results of your searches to scholarly peer-reviewed and to types of scholarly articles. 
  • If you need to verify whether a specific journal is peer-reviewed or refereed, click on the title of the journal if it is a hyperlink and scroll to find more information about whether the journal is peer reviewed.  You may also run a Google search with the title of the journal in quotes and the word Refereed or Peer Reviewed next to the quotes.
  • Use the thesauri available in many database to help with search terms.
