Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journal Articles are written by experts and are reviewed by several other experts in the field before the article is published in the journal in order to insure the article's quality.
If you're searching for articles in the Multi-Database Search, you can limit your search to Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) sources simply by checking the box Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) in the advanced search option.
If you're looking at the journal itself, look at the editorial statement or instructions to authors (usually in the first few pages of the journal or at the end) for references to the peer-review process.
