Q. 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.
