Is Therapeutic Advances in Drug Safety Journal peer-reviewed?

How would I know if a journal is peer-reviewed or not? I tried looking at journal's website but could not find any useful information. Thank you for your help.

Hi,

You were correct in going to the journal's web site.  Frequently, peer review information is part of information for authors, so you needed to click the "submit a manuscript" link.  From there there is a link to Peer review.  Here's the statement:

Peer review statement
The Therapeutic Advances series adheres to a blinded peer review process in which the reviewers' names are routinely withheld from the author unless a reviewer requests a preference for his or her identity to be revealed. Authors are invited to suggest the names, affiliations and contact information of up to six individuals who may be suitable to serve as referees, but the Editors are under no obligation to use all or any of these individuals as reviewers. All manuscripts are reviewed initially by the Editors and only those papers that meet the scientific and editorial standards of the journal, and fit within the aims and scope of the journal, will be sent for outside review. Each research article and review manuscript is reviewed by at least two referees. All manuscripts are reviewed as rapidly as possible, and a first editorial decision is generally reached within 3 weeks of submission.

So, yes, it is peer reviewed.

Good luck,
