Search in ProQuest

ProQuest is a research platform that contains many databases that are full of articles (e.g., journals, newspapers, magazines), dissertations, and eBooks. It also has a tool to filter your results to articles in peer-reviewed journals. 

Peer reviewed

A publication in which articles go through an official editorial process that involves review and approval by the author's peers (people who are experts in the same subject area).
Most (but not all) scholarly publications are peer reviewed. Some trade publications are peer reviewed. ProQuest uses Ulrichsweb as the primary reference source to categorize peer reviewed publications. (Instructions on using Ulrichsweb)
