It's actually like it sounds. These are articles that list all the sources (references) used and consulted when writing the article. In EBSCO it's called References Available, but in the articles themselves it could be listed as References, Bibliography, Works Cited, Sources or other things, but it all means that the articles listed were used when writing the article. You can usually find the list at the end of the article. 

As a college students it's great when you find article that list references, because then you know whether the author(s) got there information and that helps you evaluate how good a source it is. Your instructor does the same thing with your paper and evaluates the sources that you used.

Find out more about evaluation in the Information Ethics libguide, see link below.
