A peer reviewed article is an article published in a scholarly journal that is reviewed by scholars and experts to ensure its accuracy and creditability before being published. Due to the vetting process these articles have undergone, peer reviewed articles are recognized as valuable pieces of research and are excellent sources to use in your own research.
You can easily search for peer reviewed articles in Burroughs library’s databases by selecting the “peer reviewed” option, often found on the side bar.
