Two comments on determining the refereed status of journals:
1.  Ulrich's and EBSCO's Serials Directory are useful, but not complete.
2.  There's nothing like calling the editor of the journal (or former editor--
who you can identify by calling the publisher if you don't have the relevant

I speak from personal experience -- I recently had to work through a list
of somewhat obscure journals to determine their peer-reviewed/refereed status
as part of a tenure decision discussion.  I used Ulrich's, The Serials
Directory, and called publishers and editors (particularly fun when the journal
titles have ceased).  I had some nice chats with people and was able to get
some information that would not have been readily available--since our library
like so many others has cut lots of titles.

Dear Jill:
I have the 1991-92 copy of Ulrich's and Educational Record is not listed
in the Referred Serials Sections.  Hope this is of some help.  Good luck!
