Many library research databases allow you to limit your search to scholarly or refereed articles. From a Summon search results list, you can click on the Scholarly & Peer Review option under Refine Your Search on the left side of the screen.   EBSCO databases allow you refine your search results (left side of screen) to Academic Journals, which is another term for Scholarly Journals.  Note, however, that some academic journal articles are not peer-reviewed.
