To answer everyday questions, you turn to information that is made readily available to you at the click of a button. In today’s fast-paced world you are often bombarded with more information than any one person can handle. With the 24-hour news cycle, the media tries to capture your attention with sensational stories and catchy headlines.

Communication of scientific results usually takes place in a peer-reviewed journal. A peer-reviewed journal is one in which other experts in the specific field read and critique the author’s article, including their research and results, before it can be published in the journal. This process is done to maintain the standards of research. To find an example of a research article that has gone through the peer-review process, use the “Biology Newsfinder” tool in the Wiley Plus® “Science in the News” resource. Access this tool through the link in the left hand navigation for this unit.
