Peer-reviewed, refereed, or scholarly journals have articles that have been reviewed by experts in the field. Not all articles in peer-reviewed journals are reviewed, however. Some may be news, opinion, or short reports. Many databases are either all peer-reviewed journals or have a check box to limit a search to just peer-reviewed journals.
Databases will search of many journals to help you find articles related to your topics. Some databases will provide the full article while some will just provide you with a summary which the full articles can be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
