A peer-reviewed publication is also sometimes referred to as a scholarly publication. The peer-review process subjects an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field (peers) and is necessary for publication in some journals or other publications.

Most databases (including FLITE's tool SmartSearch) include a search function that will limit results to only peer-reviewed materials. Generally this tool is located on the far-left side of the datebase interface along with other useful options to control search results. This includes SmartSearch.
