Weighing research and testing against the findings of peers is the foundation of all science. Studies must be conducted again and again to confirm results, tried and evaluated by different minds in unique ways and thoroughly tested.
Peer review allows for a paper or research to be properly criticized and ultimately allows it to be a more productive piece in further expansion of the topic. Many look to C&T for peer reviewed articles because of this fact, as these articles uphold the integrity of science and offer quality information.
Yet there are many articles that are not peer reviewed across many websites. It certainly is not always necessary in all published pieces, whether scientific or not, and the process required can be cumbersome and time consuming. Yet the accuracy and longevity of non peer reviewed articles may be questioned, which made us question:
