Answer

Using databases to search for journal articles is helpful when you are looking for articles on a particular topic.  Some databases that provide full-text articles will allow you to limit your results to "scholarly" or "peer-reviewed" journals.  If the particular database you are using offers this as an option, then use that option as part of your search strategy.

Academic Search Premier and PsychInfo are two examples that offer this limiter.

Articles in a peer-reviewed journal undergo a critical review process by selected experts in the field before being accepted for publication.

Stop by the Reference desk if you'd like additional assistance.
