Databases provide access to articles from credible, well-known newspapers, magazines, and journals.
Some databases contain scholarly content, like academic journals on a specific subject, and others contain articles from popular magazines such as Newsweek or Forbes. Databases may contain a mixture of content from both scholarly and popular sources.
Most databases allow you to separate out only scholarly or peer-reviewed articles. Usually this involves clicking a box next to the term, limit to scholarly articles or limit search to peer-review.
