Peer review is a process that involves review of research by one or more scholars. It serves as a form of quality control and is sometimes used to determine whether a piece of scholarly research is worthy of publication. In most databases that the library provides there is the opportunity to narrow your search results so that they only include peer reviewed articles.

You will discover peer reviewed articles by using WorldCat. There are also specific databases you can use to search the scholarly literature of various scholarly disciplines. The Library's Libguides will assist you in finding the right databsae. Just find the LibGuide for your subject.
