Peer review is the evaluation of work by one or more people with similar competencies as the producers of the work (peers). It functions as a form of self-regulation by qualified members of a profession within the relevant field.
If using PQ Central (Proquest), there is an option on the front page 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 to select Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals.
In both cases, tick (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.
