Develop criteria to determine whether a journal article is peer-reviewed or to authenticate information retrieved from a non-peer-reviewed web resource. In addition, explore the importance of using peer-reviewed articles and when it may be acceptable to use non-peer-reviewed articles as a scholar-practitioner.
the titles and URLs of both articles you selected. Post the criteria lists you created to determine the peer-reviewed journal article and the non-peer-reviewed material you selected. Explain the importance of using peer-reviewed journal articles as a scholar-practitioner. Finally, explain when non-peer-reviewed materials are acceptable to use as a scholar-practitioner.
