When an instructor requires students to find journal articles, he or she will usually expect articles from peer-reviewed journals. Peer review is the process by which an author's peers read a paper submitted for publication. A number of recognized researchers in the field will evaluate the manuscript and recommend its publication, revision, or rejection. Articles accepted for publication through a peer-review process implicitly meet the discipline's expected standards of expertise. Most databases will allow you to limit your search to peer-reviewed only.
