Q. Where can I find a peer-reviewed article?

"Peer-reviewed," "scholarly," "academic,"and "refereed" are often used interchangeably to describe journals that use some kind of rigorous reviewing process to verify the validity and originality of articles submitted for publication.
In many databases, including ProQuest Central or Ebsco Academic, you can limit your search to scholarly or peer-reviewed journals. This will omit articles from more popular magazines such as Time or People.
Once you have input a search and have a list of articles, you may also have the option to limit your results to show only popular, trade, or academic publications.
Example from Ebsco:
