For other topics (i.e. psychology) search the Database A to Z listing by subject or ask a Librarian to recommend helpful databases to search.

If you still don't know if a journal is scholarly, search for the journal title in Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory. This resource provides detailed descriptions of journals, including whether or not they are refereed (i.e. peer-reviewed, scholarly).
