How do I know if a journal article is peer reviewed?

In most of our databases you can limit your search to scholarly, academic journals or peer reviewed. Peer review is the process where one or more people who have knowledge and competencies in the same field as the author of the work evaluate a scientific, or professional work. The goal is to maintain standards of quality, check research methods, and provide credibility. Most often these these articles are research heavy, lengthy, original research or in-depth analysis of a topic, written in the specialized language of the discipline, contain extensive documentation through footnotes and bibliographies, and written by authors who provide their credentials indicating their expertise.
