Scholarly and Peer Reviewed Articles


Sometimes called scholarly, peer-reviewed, academic, or even "refereed', these terms all refer to journals that require review by a group of experts in the field before an article can be published. These experts are looking for things like appropriate methodology, proper research and citations, advancements to the field, etc.

When searching for articles, look for the option to narrow your search by peer reviewed, scholarly, or ‘refereed’
