FMPD (Fashion Merchandising and Product Development): Scholarly Journal Articles

This page is designed to assist BGSU students enrolled in FMPD classes with their library research

What's a scholarly or peer-reviewed article?

Assignments may ask you to find scholarly and peer reviewed articles. These items:

  • generally focus on scholarly research
  • are written by experts in the field or discipline
  • are critically reviewed by other experts before publication
  • contain cited references to the information sources used

Finding Scholarly Research Articles

Library databases contain scholarly or peer reviewed articles & allow you to limit your search to include only these articles in the results.  

Either use the advanced search feature to find the option to limit to scholarly or peer-reviewed or look for a limiter option (left side of screen) after running your search.
