News & commentary (non-peer reviewed resources)

News and commentary resources are often helpful in identifying ideas, topics, or issues that may be of use to you as you develop your research question. These types of sources are considered "non-peer reviewed' meaning they are not vetted in the same way as articles in academic journals. As with any source, evaluate your information. See the guide homepage for evaluation tips.

Source Evaluation Activity

Using the CRAAP criteria located on the homepage, evaluate the resource assigned to your group.
