Need a Peer-Reviewed or Scholarly Article?

Many databases allow you to limit your search to peer-reviewed (scholarly) articles.  Look for a checkbox on the search screen or in a side frame on the results page.


Rutgers University library has a helpful guide here for more help on determining whether or not an article is peer-reviewed.

Citing Articles

Remember to give credit to the original source when you use someone else's work or idea, whether you use a direct quote or paraphrase.  Most style guides require some form of citation in the text of your paper as well as at the end in a bibliography or list of references.
