The simplest way to determine if a journal is peer-reviewed or refereed is to use Ulrich's Web. Ulrich's Web is a database that contains information on over 300,000 journals, magazines and newspapers.
You can access Ulrich's Web directly through UofT Library catalogue record or by typing "ulrich's web" into the University of Toronto Library's webpage
Type the name of the journal you are investigating into the Ulrich database. If the icon (highlighted in yellow) appears to the left of your journal, then you know the journal is a scholarly publication.
In the example shown below, both the online and print versions of Earth Sciences History are peer-reviewed, while Earth Sciences is not.
