In our EBSCO databases like Academic Search Ultimate, Business Source Complete, and Literary Reference Center Plus, you can click on the box "Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals" to limit your search to that category. You can also use the filter your results to the academic journal source type.

In some of the databases, when you are looking at an article abstract, you can click on the journal title (possibly labeled as "Source") to get more information about that journal, including whether or not it is peer-reviewed.

For other databases, you may have to evaluate whether the article is scholarly on your own. You can use this evaluation chart to help you make that determination or you can contact a librarian if you're still unsure.
