There are several ways to determine if a journal is peer-reviewed.

The easiest way is to use the library databases and limit your search to peer-reviewed journals.  Then you'll know that all of your results are peer-reviewed.  Usually the filters will be on the left-hand side of the screen after you do a search.

You can also Google the name of the journal and visit their website directly.  If the journal is peer-reviewed, that will be stated on the website (usually on the About page).

Please contact a librarian at if you need extra help finding peer-reviewed articles.
