A peer-reviewed article is a journal article that has been reviewed by other subject experts and scholars before being published. The group of experts and scholar reviewing an article either accept, reject, or request edits and revisions of the article before it is published. Because of this process, peer-reviewed journal articles are often considered the most reliable and authoritative sources. 

To find peer-reviewed articles, you can either search directly in a database or do a keyword search in the Explore RSU Libraries search box on our homepage and then select the "Peer-Review" filter.
