Tips and tricks

Peer reviewed articles

RILM: Use the "academic journals" filter.  Most of the results in that filter will be in peer-reviewed journals, but to be sure, enter the article or its DOI (document object identifer, starting with 10.xxxx) into Scholar OneSearch, which will indicate if your article is peer-reviewed.  View the steps in this tutorial.
