How to find sources that are peer-reviewed?

Answer:

Using library databases, most have filters that allow users to see results that are only scholarly, peer-reviewed. Also, one may note the authority of the author, references, and publisher from a source's bibliographic information to determine if it is peer-reviewed.

Question:

In what ways does author Cormac McCarthy portray the roles of the female characters in his works Outer Dark and The Road?

Answer:

The plot in The Road is driven by dialogue. The mother's lack of dialogue is indicative of her worth to the main character and it can be argued that their tumultuous relationship correlates with a larger theme of how men value women. Similarly in Outer Dark, the same larger theme is portrayed in the repeated instances where Rinthy's well-being is subject to the desires of Culla.

Answer:

Your is used when referencing something that you possess, whereas the contraction you're is shorthand for you are. An example of how each are properly used in a sentence: If you're cold, then why don't you put on your jacket?
