Your instructor may require that you use peer-reviewed articles in your research.  What is a peer-reviewed article?  Considered the "gold standard" of research, a peer-reviewed article is an article that must be reviewed by two or more professionals in the field before being accepted for publication.  Peer-reviewed articles are generally written by and for faculty, researchers, or scholars.  They tend to be longer than "popular" literature and use scholarly or technical language.  You might also hear them called "scholarly" articles.
