Academic articles, also called scholarly, peer-reviewed, or refereed articles can be found in many Webster University Library databases. Often databases allow you to limit to only these articles.

1. Begin at the library homepage: http://library.webster.edu/

2. Click the big, blue button for "Articles and Databases"

3. Use the pull-down menu labeled "Know the database you want?" A good place to start is Academic Search Complete database.

4. If prompted, login using your last name (in the top box) and your 7-digit Webster ID number (in the second box). Note: Can't remember you ID number? Here are instructions to finding your ID number: http://libanswers.webster.edu/faq/65009

5. To search, type key words or phrases into the search boxes; one concept per box. The database will combine concepts/keywords using AND.

6. To refine the search, to the left of the search results/articles retrieved, you may limit your search results. For example:

-To Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals- check the box (located above the date slider).
