What does Peer Review mean?:

A peer-reviewed journal is one in which a group of widely acknowledged experts in a field reviews the content for scholarly soundness and academic value.

Peer review may be one measure to help you evaluate an article.

You can limit your search to peer-reviewed articles in many databases.

Getting Off-Campus Access:

Current students, faculty, and staff can access online library resources from off campus by using the Library Proxy.

When visiting an online library resource (like JSTOR) from this guide, OskiCat, or other library website, you'll be prompted to log in with your Cal ID. For added flexibility, install the browser bookmarklet.
