A great resource for locating peer-reviewed articles in psychology is the PsycInfo database. Opening PsycInfo defaults to the advanced search, which includes a box you can mark to limit to Peer Reviewed / Scholarly journals. Type in several keywords that describe your topic, then click the search button. To get to the actual articles, click the Find@UW button if you don't see an immediate link to PDF or HTML full text.
Note that not all articles in peer-reviewed journals are peer-reviewed. Letters to the editor and opinion pieces do not typically go through the peer review process.
PsycInfo also allows you to limit searches to specific kinds of research methodology: empirical studies, meta analyses, systematic reviews, and so forth. Scroll down the page in the advanced search and watch for the methodology section.
