Databases

You can use library databases to find peer-reviewed articles.  Here are several that we recommend for History:

What is Peer-Review?

Peer-reviewed articles:

  • Published in academic journals
  • Use the language of the field in which they were published
  • Written by professionals for professionals
  • Reviewed by professionals before publication

Articles are often more topic-specific than books.

By using library resources, you can easily find peer-reviewed information!  Many of our article databases have boxes to check that will help you limit your results to peer-reviewed journals.
(Note: This box can be a helpful shortcut, but remember that it removes scholarly book chapters and may still include a small a few editorial articles that are not peer-reviewed, though they are published in peer-reviewed publications.)
