Find Peer-reviewed Articles
Library databases are the best starting point when you are looking for scholarly or peer-reviewed articles. These databases contain records of published articles, book chapters, dissertations, or other types of items. Since they are online, you can search them anywhere and at anytime. But remember, if you use them off-campus, you need to login using your CougarNet account.
