Current Events: Newspapers & Magazines

Why Use the News?

Typically, your instructors tend to prefer that you use scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles for your research assignments. However, that's not the case when you're researching current events. It takes months of editing and review before a scholarly journal article is ready to publish. Newspapers and magazines, on the other hand, are updated on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. When you want the latest information, turn to a newspaper or magazine!
