SUGGESTION: If you need to determine whether or not a given periodical (journal or magazine) is a "scholarly" or "academic" resource, search for that periodical in the Ulrich's Periodical Directory database and read the descriptive entry. What you want is a periodical described as "academic/scholarly" and/or as "refereed."
For example, here is the Ulrich's list of "academic/scholarly" journalism journals, while here is the list of "academic/scholarly" communications journals. Note that only a sub-set of "academic/scholarly" journals are refereed.
