I believe for a journal to be scholarly the most importatant criteria is articles be peer-reviewed prior to publication. After that, I use the publisher (respected or not? what is track record? From a university? Professional association?), as well as my impression from reading the articles (well-written, i.e. in Standard English) and when technical words or phrases are used can I figure out the meaning from context or one of my dictionaries).
