Psychology Today would not be considered a scholarly journal and it is not peer reviewed. It is more of a popular magazine, like for example, Time Magazine. It does however, have credible sources, and most instructors would agree that it is an acceptable source for a paper. You might want to check with your instructor to make sure.

If you want to limit your search to just scholarly journals:

  • Type your search terms in the One Search box on the Library website, book.matc.edu
  • On the results page, on the left side-bar, you can click the source type "Academic Journals" to limit just to scholarly journals
  • If your assignment specifically calls for just peer-reviewed journals, you can limit by that too.
  • See our guides How to Find a Journal Article guide and Searching Tips (links below) if you need help searching for articles.
