Hi Halah,

It does depends a little bit on what database you are using. If using PQ Central (Proquest), there is an option on the front page: http://0-search.proquest.com.mylibrary.qu.edu.qa/false?accountid=13370 directly below the search bar to check for Peer Review articles. If you are using Academic Search Complete (Ebsco), there is also an option on the main page http://0-web.a.ebscohost.com.mylibrary.qu.edu.qa/ehost/search/basic?sid=8f3597b2-8016-4fa4-92be-c0fe9dc6cd64%40sessionmgr4005&vid=1&hid=4112 to select Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals.

In both cases, check the Peer Review box and all the results you receive for the keyword(s) you have used will be from scholarly articles. This will vary for other databases, but if it is possible to limit, there will be a box to check. Does this make sense? Hope so. If you need more explanation, let me know. amrita.mckinney@qu.edu.qa
