What is Peer-Reviewed?

Articles in peer reviewed journals have been assessed before publication by subject experts. This means they are the 'gold' standard in academic articles. You will be expected to use peer reviewed journal articles in your assignments. The best way to search for peer reviewed journal articles on a specific topic is to use a subject database.

Key Resources for finding Psychology articles:

When researching a psychology topic, the Libraries recommend starting with the ProQuest Psychology database. 

Many of our databases include an "Advanced Searching" option: use it to quickly and easily improve the accuracy of your searches and get fewer but higher quality search results.

Search Tips:

  1. Start Simple (don't type too many terms into the search box)
  2. Found an article?Skim through it! (you may discover more specific search terms)
  3. Don't just stick with one database! (search multiple databases! Not all databases indexes the same collection of journals and articles)
