In general, to find a peer-reviewed journal, open one of our periodical (journals are a type of periodical) databases, perform a search, and then limit to "Peer Reviewed Journals" using the database's refinement tools. 

One of the best periodical databases to start looking, because it has periodicals on such a wide range of topics, is the Database, Academic Search Complete.  To find a peer-reviewed journal article using Academic Search Complete, go to the library homepage, click on Databases in the library menu and then open the database Academic Search Complete.   Perform a search for your topic or keywords (keep search very short and very specific; do not add extra words).  Once you have your list of results, look to the left of them at all of the refinement options.  Click the box for Scholarly (Peer-reviewed) Journals to view only those items in your results that are from peer-reviewed journals.
