Two Approaches toward Sleep Deprivation 2 Peer Review versus Non Peer-Review Peer-review articles may appear to share similar traits that are also present in a non peer- review article; however the notion that they are one in the same is often misleading and incorrect. Peer-review articles are required to satisfy specific sets of conditions before they may be creditable on a professional level. Non-peer review articles however are not bound to this stipulation and therefore the opinions of such articles could be considered of less value than its peer-reviewed counterparts. Opinions found in non-peer review articles are also free to bias and scenarios of the theoretical nature. The lack of regulation in non-peer review articles are a fundamental flaw which makes the information provided susceptible to doubt. The writing styles of peer-review and non peer review articles are distinctively different and easily distinguished from one another. For example, the format in which peer-review articles are portrayed is more professionally written and of a higher caliber than one would find in a non peer-review article. Non peer-review articles are mostly aimed at a general audience hence the level of vocabulary is taken into consideration. Additionally peer-review articles have been examined by countless experts in the specific subject and edited so it contains minimal errors. Although peer-review articles may contain hypothetical situations, they are based on and supported by specific case studies. On the contrary hypothetical incidents which occur in a non peer-review article are not necessarily as supported by evidence, but more so by personal opinion.
