Q. Where can I find peer reviewed articles?

Where can I find peer reviewed articles from scholarly journals?


The library subscribes to many academic, scholarly, peer-reviewed journals.

If you need a refresher on what your professor means when they tell you to use peer-reviewed articles (sometimes also known as academic or scholarly journals), see this tutorial.

Here are a few ways you can find peer-reviewed articles in the library:

  • To search for articles on a topic: Use your keywords to search OneSearch https://libguides.sdsu.edu/csuonesearch and use the limits on the results page to "Peer-reviewed Journals"
  • To search for articles from a specific field: Find the relevant research guide https://libguides.sdsu.edu/ and look for the "articles" tab to find the most useful databases for your subject. Choose a database, and search with your keywords
  • To find a specific journal: If you know the name of the journal you need, you can search for it by name in OneSearch
  • To find a specific article: You can search for the name of the article in OneSearch 


Note: most of the journals we have access to are by subscription, which means you will need an SDSUid and password to log-in. Unfortunately, our license agreements do not allow us to give off-campus access to alumni or community members. When the library is open, however, guests are welcome to access these resources from the library.
