Peer-reviewed, also known as scholarly, sources are those that have been reviewed by scholars from the same field of study as the author. This ensures that the source is verified to be of scholarly quality. 

The easiest way to find peer-reviewed sources is to use one of the many databases MBU offers. Many databases will offer a 'peer-reviewed' limiter that will limit your results to only peer-reviewed sources; this limiter, and many others, can be found in the right or left column of your search results page.
