The easiest way to determine if an article is peer-reviewed is to look up the journal in which the article is published in Ulrichsweb, available from the Databases by Title (A-Z) list on the library homepage. Once you are in the database, simply look up the journal using the search box. In the results list, if a referee's-shirt icon appears next to the journal title, then it is refereed and scholarly. You can double-check by opening the record and look for the word Yes next to the heading Refereed.
