Answer

From our library website at www.saintleo.edu/library select the A-Z List in the left column. Then type in the journal title to each article you found. If you cannot find a journal title, it most likely is not from a journal, but just published by an organization. 

For journals that we have subscriptions to, the databases that contain it will be diplayed. Select one that has the date span that includes your article. Then, depending on the database, you will either be able to select "peer reviewed" or Advanced Search and then "peer reviewed." You would then search to see if any results come up. If so, the journal is peer reviewed; if there are "no results," then that journal is not peer reviewed. 

Note:

Several of our database providers allow you to select that option when you are conducting a search for any topic, just check the box next to that option before searching.
