Working from an article citation from another source:

If you are investigating a journal from an existing article citation, go to the CSUMB Journals List and search on the journal name. The Journals List will often include information on whether that journal is peer-reviewed or not. When searching for names of journals using the CSUMB Journals List, you may also limit your search to those that are peer-reviewed.

Consult the Library's Subject Research Guides for recommendations on which databases to use for research projects.
