Firstly, what is a peer-reviewed research article?

Watch this short video to better understand a little bit about scholarly articles and peer review.

Secondly, how do I find a peer-reviewed research article?

My top recommendation for finding peer-reviewed research articles for psychology, is to use the PsycINFO database. 


Because it is "the" research database for psychology, and includes a lot of original research studies and experiments. Plus, there are lots of specialized search filters to help you uncover whatever it is you seek.

How do I access this PsycINFO database, anyway?

From the top of the UVic Library homepage (, click on the Databases > Search all databases by name > type PsycINFO 

Or, you can use the direct link to PsycINFO below.
