Want to see if a journal is peer-reviewed? Check the title in Ulrich's. If it says Academic/Scholarly in the Content Type heading, then it is an academic journal, which may or may not be peer-reviewed. If it says "yes" next to Refereed then it is a peer-reviewed journal. (The symbol for refereed is a black image that reminds me of gritted teeth). You can also use Ulrich's to find the full name of an abbreviated title. For instance if you type in: Pak J Med Sci, Ulrich's will display Pakistan Journal of Medical Sciences.
