    What are peer-reviewed sources?

    Peer-reviewed sources are original research projects that scientists and researchers share and publish. These sources go through an extensive -- and often long -- evaluation process by:

    1. Fellow subject matter experts; and
    2. Journal editors

    before they are published. You can access peer-reviewed sources through academic databases like EBSCOhost, JSTOR, and ProQuest. Google Scholar is another place to find peer-reviewed sources

    Peer-reviewed sources include, but are not limited to:

    • Academic (scholarly) journal articles
    • eBooks
    • Book chapters
