Peer-review is a process of quality control where experts evaluate each other's work, provide comments, and recommend revisions before new research is published. Hostos Library licenses many databases that provide peer-reviewed, scientific articles. Many articles that describe publicly funded research are freely available through PubMed, the National Library of Medicine's database for medical research.
This list of library databases can help you locate peer-reviewed studies on a variety of topics related to community health.
