Week 2 Information literacy Assignment Information Literacy Assignment English 135 Professor Wright DeVry University Week 2 Information literacy Assignment 2 In your own words identify points in the peer review cycle that seem especially important and explain why The most important points in the power point peer review cycle are as follows creating an idea researching said idea peer reviewing the work and the publication of the idea The peer review cycle begins with a person and a new idea Without an original idea there wouldn t be a peer review cycle to begin with The second most important point in the peer review cycle would be conducting the actual research An individual would want to have a paper full of factual and meaningful information and this is where you ll find all of that If somebody wants to have a successful and well developed paper he or she would want it to be peer reviewed Peer reviewing a paper is the third most important point of the cycle The peer review process is just a process in which experts look over the documentation and critiques what needs to be changed The fourth and final major point in the peer review cycle is the official publication The paper or journal will be published in an article which will inform enlighten and prompt new ideas to all of its readers How does an editor differ from a peer reviewer Use at least two points to support your response An editor and peer reviewer are two completely unlike types of people that help make an article or journal successful The peer reviewer s job is essentially just a quality control mechanism The peer review process is a procedure in which experts evaluate intellectual works and the main goal is to ensure a high quality of published knowledge However peer reviewers do not have the authority to accept or reject papers At most they recommend decisions and changes Week 2 Information literacy Assignment 3 throughout papers At peer reviewed journals decision making authority rests solely with journal editors or the journal s editorial board More often than not after a paper is submitted to a journal or newspaper the editor looks over the document and decides whether or not to send it for full peer reviewer Only after clearing the initial screening is the document sent to one or more peer reviewers Finally editors or the editorial board consider the peer reviewers reports and make the final decision to accept or reject the article for the said journal or newspaper Based on this information explain whether your article for this week was peer reviewed How can you determine this information I can determine that my article was peer reviewed because of several reasons The first reason being that any peer reviewed article can be found in journals both online and in print which mine was These articles are written by experts in a field of study and tend to be longer more indepth then articles you find in newspapers and magazines Secondly scholarly articles are also supported by references to other research on the subject that is being discussed Another reason for me believing that my article was heavily peer reviewed and looked over is because it s from The Huffington Post The Huffington Post was launched in early May of 2005 as a liberal commentary outlet and alternative to news aggregators such as the Drudge Report In July of 2012 the Huffington Post was ranked numberl on the top 15 most popular political sites list by eBizMBA rank News sites just do not get to the top spot without having solid articles on their site which obviously needed to be peer reviewed in order to get to where they are Week 2 Information literacy Assignment 4 As you work on your research in this class where specifically can you look to find peer reviewed information Many databases including DeVry s library database allow you to limit your search to peer reviewed articles In any database look for the option to limit your results to scholarly journals or peer reviewed when entering your search terms If you do not see this option on the search engine check for the advanced search option this may allow you to search solely for peer reviewed articles or documents Certain databases will not offer this option and may not even include peer reviewed articles and I would recommend staying away from these Not all information in a peerreviewed journal is actually looked over or reviewed however For example editorials letters to the editor book reviews and other types of information don39t count as articles and may not be accepted by all professors
