Professors may ask you to find Peer-Reviewed, Refereed or Scholarly articles or journals from Library databases.
This research guide provides resources to identify peer-reviewed and scholarly articles and journals.
"Your professor wants you to use scholarly journals because they are considered the most accurate and reliable sources for university-level work. Using scholarly journals is also a good way to learn how experts conduct research and share their findings. Knowing this process helps you become a critical thinker and acquire professional expertise."
