There are two basic ways to tell if a journal article is peer-reviewed:
1) Limit your search results to peer-reviewed content. Many databases we have provide this option, usually by checking a box. For example, with our Summon search, you can limit your results to "Scholarly materials, including peer-reviewed" either before you search (with Advanced Search) or after (with Simple Search).
2) Check UlrichsWeb to see if the journal that published the article is peer-reviewed. Search for a journal by the name of the journal or its ISSN in Ulrichsweb, and look for the referee jersey logo:
