How to Research Occupational Safety and Health Topics

What are peer-reviewed articles?

Peer-reviewed articles, sometimes called scholarly or academic articles, are research studies or critical overviews of industry topics that are written by subject experts and reviewed by other experts in the field before publication in order to ensure the articles' quality.

Written by scholars + reviewed by scholars = peer-reviewed.

See this guide for more information about identifying peer-reviewed articles and how to find them in the CSU Library.

What is the best way to search the library databases?

The best way to search the library databases is to try out different combinations of key words/short phrases.  Phrase searching is one technique you can use to refine your search.  To phrase search, place phrases inside quotation marks or parentheses.  This tells the database to search the phrase as a unit instead of a string of keywords.

Example:

"safety management"

(safety management)
