Using Google Scholar to find peer-reviewed articles

You also can find peer-reviewed articles in Google Scholar:

Peer-reviewed articles in Google Scholar may not be free and full-text. To limit your search to full-text, follow your search terms with the file-type limiter as in the example above.

How do you know if the article is peer-reviewed? Clues include:

  • The word Journal is in the publication title.
  • The author's name and academic credentials are prominent.
  • There is a list of references at the end of the article.

If in doubt, Google the publication title to see if you can find a description that says if it is peer-reviewed; or Ask a Librarian.
