Most scholarly journals indexed by our databases are peer-reviewed or refereed, but peer review criteria and reviewer or referee qualifications vary. If you are using a database such as CINAHL that does include non peer-reviewed information, there will be a peer-reviewed filter that you can check in order to refine your search to include only those articles.

Also, by using Summon (the main search box on the library's homepage) you can refine your search by clicking on the Peer-Review filter on the left.

We do have an excellent resource that will give you more information on how to find peer-reviewed articles and journals. It can be found in our Peer Review and Scholarly Articles guide.
