What are Non peer reviewed sources

A non peer reviewed source is an information source that has not undergone peer review. A government publication, book or book chapter, theses and dissertations, a newspaper or magazine article, a website or blog post, or a document published by a government agency are all examples of non-peer reviewed sources.

One other non-peer reviewed source is an article from a trade journal. Trade journals, also called trade publications, trade magazines or professional magazines, are magazines or newspapers whose target audience is people who work in a particular profession or industry. Articles in these publications are often short and the publications may contain advertisements. Examples of trade publications include Chronicle of Higher Education, Education Week, Ad Week, etc.

As for peer-reviewed sources, you should always evaluate a non peer-reviewed information source for relevance, credibility, and appropriateness for your situation. 

Always make sure to consult your course materials and instructor for specific guidelines about acceptable source types for your assignments.
