For your studies, you will need to find academic sources. These can include academic textbooks and scholarly, peer-reviewed articles.
What does Peer-reviewed mean?
Peer-reviewing is a vigorous process where articles written by academics are assessed by other academics, who give the writer editorial feedback. The article is rewritten using this feedback, before being published in an academic journal.
There are multiple ways you can find databases to help you find journal articles:
1. You can use the library's main catalogue, Library Search, and use the filters on the left-hand side.
2. You can access the subject library guides. These guides will give you advice on which databases will help you find journal articles appropriate to your studies.
The database links from the Business: Core Resources Guide are also in the right-hand column.
You can access the databases through the A - Z databases on myUniHub.
Limit your results to 'Scholarly & Peer-Reviewed' articles using the left-hand column.
If it is peer-reviewed, it will have this icon:

Limit your results to 'Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals' using the left-hand column.
Other Search Engines
Search engines may not explicitly state if an article has been peer-reviewed. If you are unsure whether an article has been peer-reviewed, look for the 'about this journal' section in the journal.
