A peer reviewed journal contains articles that have been reviewed by a panel of experts prior to publication.

When you search various Databases you may have an option to restrict your search to scholarly / peer-reviewed / academic articles.

Check Ulrichsweb to see whether a journal is peer reviewed. Search for the name of the journal and the academic gown symbol.
