What is peer review?

Peer review is a process that articles go through before they are published in some academic journals. Other academics are asked to review these articles to make sure they are high quality. As a result, peer reviewed articles are very reliable. 

Evaluating Journal Articles

Recent: You want to avoid articles that are out of date, so you have to pay attention to when an article was published. 

Relevant: Use the amount of research you need to do the assignment properly, and don't use unnecessary articles. 

Reliable: For upper division and graduate courses, reliability means that the article has been peer reviewed by specialists in the field.
