A “peer-reviewed” or “refereed” journal is one in which its articles have been reviewed by experts (usually faculty members) with credentials in the article’s field of study before it is published.

You can verify that a journal is peer reviewed (refereed) by looking up the journal title in Ulrich's Global Serials Directory. Many Harvard article databases also allow you to limit your research results to peer reviewed journals only.
