1. When searching for articles in databases, limit your search results to peer-reviewed content. Most databases provide this option, usually by checking a box on the search or advanced search page:
2. Check to see if the journal that published the article is a peer-reviewed journal:
Use the online database Serials Directory. Type in the title of the journal. Find the journal in the list and click on its title. Scroll down nearly to the bottom of the page. If the journal is peer-reviewed, you will see Peer Reviewed: Yes
Go to the journal's/publisher's web page. If it's peer-reviewed, it'll say.
