Q. What is a scholarly journal?


The easiest way to find peer-reviewed journal articles is to search the library's databases.  Most library databases have an option/checkbox to limit results to scholarly/peer-reviewed articles, while some, like PsycARTICLES and Science Direct, contain only scholarly articles.

From the JCC Libraries' homepage go to Databases by Title or Databases by Subject under SEARCH COLLECTIONS. 

If you are looking for articles on a specific subject, for example: Nursing, Criminal Justice or Literature, click on Databases by Subject and select from the drop-down list at the top of the page then click on "Apply." 


Remember, if you are off-campus, you will be prompted to enter your student ID and password in order to access the databases.
