About Peer Review

If your professor asks you to find "scholarly" or "peer reviewed" journal articles, be sure the article you find is from a source that has gone through the peer review process. Many databases offer a search filter to limit to only journals that are scholarly or peer reviewed. You can also check the journal title in the Ulrich's database to see if it is peer reviewed. 

About Trade Journals & Magazines

In the field of Business & Economics, there are many journals utilized by professionals that are not scholarly or peer reviewed, but do offer valuable information. These include titles such as the Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, and Forbes Magazine.
