Are newspaper articles considered peer-reviewed?


No, newspaper articles are NOT considered peer-reviewed. 

  • They are often the opinions of reporters or the publishers, rather than academic analysis or research.
  • Peer-review is a process where an article is reviewed by other professionals in that field.
  • It would be difficult for newspapers to engage in this lengthy process as newspapers are published daily.
  • Therefore, it is safe to assume that a newspaper article would not be peer-reviewed.

Check with the instructor or your Campus Library/ARC if you need further assistance with this.
