Your instructors may require the use of scholarly journals, also called "academic," "refereed," or "peer-reviewed" journals. As previous noted, scholarly/peer reviewed journal articles are highly regarded sources because they are reviewed by other subject experts before being published.

Library Search and many article databases have an option to limit search results to scholarly journals, which Google Scholar cannot do

Library Search can also limit results by publication date and to those materials "available in library" physically or online, but use these limiters thoughtfully! Here's why:

  • Applying these limiters before reviewing your initial search results may screen out "the perfect article" for your research topic.
  • Books and articles not available through UNK Library can be requested through interlibrary loan at no charge.
