You can find peer-reviewed or scholarly articles in journals. We have scholarly journals in our physical print collections in the library. Our library staff can direct your to the print collections on your campus library.
We also have thousands of scholarly or peer-reviewed journals online in databases via our website.

For online scholarly or peer-reviewed articles, follow these instructions:

1. From the library's homepage, go to the Articles & Databases.
2. Select a database such as Academic Search Premier which allows you restrict the results to include ONLY peer-reviewed or scholarly articles.

Tip: To restrict your results to only peer-reviewed or scholarly articles, look for the checkbox "Scholarly (Peer-reviewed) journals" on the left side of the screen in the filter options.

Some databases, such as JSTOR and ScienceDirect, only include scholarly/peer-reviewed journals in the database, so there is no need to limit your results. You can find these databases in the A to Z listings under Articles & Databases.

** If you are working off-campus, you will be prompted to log into MyTCC before accessing the library databases.
