Q. How do I find scholarly articles?
You can use the main search bar on the library website to search for scholarly articles. To perform search, you can search by keyword, title, or topic in the search bar. Then, click the Find button. On the right side of the results page, find the "Availability" box. Select “Peer-reviewed Journals.”
Your search results will be limited to scholarly articles. Articles in Peer-reviewed Journals have gone through the peer review or referee process, meaning another expert in the field has evaluated the article and approved its content for publication.
You can use Galvin Library databases to find scholarly articles too. Choose a database from the A-Z database list or by Subject. Some databases allow you to limit your search so that only peer reviewed or scholarly articles appear in the results. If you're not sure where to start, begin in Academic Search Complete, which contains more than 8,500 full-text periodicals concerning a wide variety of topics. It's a good place to begin research and perform cross-disciplinary searches.
