Evaluation of Articles. What are they? Peer-reviewed/Scholarly or Popular/Trade?

In the box below are four full-text articles from a variety of periodicals.  Click on the pdf to view each article.

Using the information in the tabs “Peer Reviewed and Other Definitions” and “Popular, Trade and Scholarly Periodicals”,  evaluate the articles and make a decision as to whether each article is peer reviewed/scholarly or popular/trade.

The information at the bottom of the “Criteria used to differentiate periodicals” provides some of the key characteristics to look for.  Be prepared to discuss in class why you made the decision you did.
