Peer reviewed, popular or trade?

Most databases allow you to  limit your search to peer-reviewed articles. However, if you aren't sure if an article is peer-reviewed this guide will help you make the determination.

Search Google Scholar

ETSU has partnered with Google to make our holdings available from within the search engine--just click on the familiar "Get It @ ETSU." If you're off-campus, you do need to set your preferences to let them know you're affiliated with the University.

 [Warning:  if you pull a citation through 'Get It @ ETSU' to ILLiad, the interlibrary loan app, check that all the information shows up!  Google is great, but even its crawlbots can't dig out the volume and page numbers from all sites.]
