The following databases include scholarship from a number of disciplines. Scopus collects peer-reviewed scholarly articles with a number of filters to refine your search. If you prefer Google Scholar, be mindful that you cannot limit your results by type of source. To check for yourself whether or not an article comes from a peer-reviewed journal, consult our library research guide about peer review.
These databases are curated by subject. For example, if you're researching mental health-related programs, PsycINFO might be a good place to search. If your research topic has to do with education, ERIC would be a great place to go. And if you're looking for research about public health interventions, try PubMed. For more database recommendations, see our list of Social Work databases.
