You can't always trust an article database on whether or not a particular journal is peer-reviewed. To find out whether it is or not, you can:
a) Search the journal title in the UlrichsWeb database
b) Search the journal title in Google or another search engine
- If the journal isn't in Ulrich's, you can search for its website, which will tell you whether it's peer-reviewed or not
- In Google or another search engine like Bing, type the journal title in double quotation marks so that it's read as a phrase
- E.g., type: "canadian journal of education"
- Usually, there will be writer's guidelines called "Submission guidelines," "Writers' guidelines," or something similar. That's the section where they will frequently tell you whether the journal is peer-reviewed
- The information may also be under the general information on the journal, or under something like "editorial policy"
- Sometimes it will say "blind review" when it's peer-reviewed
