I am looking for peer-reviewed articles

Answer

If an article has been peer-reviewed, that means other experts in the field read drafts of the article to be sure it met high academic and research standards.  Peer-reviewed articles tend to be written on a very narrow topic or specific research question, use highly specialized terminology, and be rather long with many citations.  

Scholarly articles can be peer-reviewed, but aren't always.  They are written by experts and are considered reliable sources, and may be just as long and as narrowly focused as peer-reviewed articles.

Most library databases have features built in to help find scholarly and peer-reviewed articles.  Look in the right or left margins of your search results for ways to narrow your search.  Usually, it's a matter of checking a box.
