scholarly icon

Peer-reviewed articles are published in academic journals, which are available in most of Western Library's databases, both multiple topic and single-subject. 

Look for the words Peer-Reviewed or Academic Journals (left-column for EBSCO databases and at the top and upper right page in Gale databases). Check the box for these filters to see only peer-reviewed articles or academic journals.


The database examples listed below provide peer-reviewed articles in multiple fields.
