The library subscribes to 150 plus research databases. These databases span the full range of academic disciplines offered at SUNY New Paltz and provide access to articles in over 60,000 journals.

Your first step in looking for peer reviewed articles in your field is to choose a database. To choose a database, click the DATABASES Tab at the top of the STL website, and click "Databases by Subject."

Scroll through the drop down menu of academic disciplines and select one, e.g., Education.


Next you will select a Database to search, e.g., ERIC; Education Research Complete; Academic Search Complete; or Education Full Text. 

Once you are in the Database, you will look to see if the Database allows you to limit your search to peer reviewed. This limit to option is usually lower on the search screen, below the Search Boxes. Once you have checked "peer review" limit option, the Database will only search for your search terms in peer reviewed journals.
