University of Texas Librarians created a handy crosswalk that explains how to do old familiar tasks in the New PubMed.
Peer Review - PubMed and Medline
Good news! Most of the journals in the Medline subset of PubMed/Medlineare peer reviewed.
Generally speaking, if you find a journal citation inPubMed/Medlineyou should be just fine. Be sure to limit to theMedline subsetwithin PubMed. However, as you can see in the PubMed FAQ below, there is no way to limit your results within thePubMedor Ovid Medline to knock out the few publications that are NOT considered refereed titles.
If you use search techniques designed forevidence-based practice, you should be ok, since peer review is baked into the best evidence process. Science is about consensus.

If you want to go deeper, Ebsco (a third party vendor) does provide a list of all titles within Medline and lets you see which titles are considered peer reviewed. You can check if your chosen journal is OK - see the "Peer Review" column in the report below to see the very small list of titles that don't make the cut.
These top journals cover a wide range of subjects within the biomedical and health fields containing information needed by doctors, nurses, health professionals and researchers engaged in clinical care, public health and health policy development.
