  • If you're using JEWL Search (which searches many different databases), once you get your results, you'll see a check box on the left.  
  • Select Scholarly (peer reviewed) as the first step to narrow to research articles

But realize, that even among those, some are reporting original research (done by the authors) while others are summarizing work of other researchers.

  • Most original, or primary research articles will have specific sections such as Introduction, Methods, Discussion, Conclusion, etc. 
  • Professional articles are typically shorter and discuss trends or new methods without original research results.
