Peer Review

A note about peer review when searching databases. Clicking "peer review" to limit the search to peer reviewed articles works most of the time, but not always. Sometimes journals contain peer reviewed research articles as well as non-peer reviewed materials such as essays or book reviews. In other cases, a journal may contain peer reviewed articles while not being considered a peer reviewed journal by the database providers. Clicking the peer reviewed link definitely helps, but you must also do your own evaluation on whether an article is peer reviewed.
