Popular sources like (https://time.com/) was the example given in the library reference video. With many times over having me complete my papers with out giving much thought to how I wanted the material used represented. I can say that I could at least use a regular source and not a wiki. Now a few years in and I have still with in my recent memory not gone to a wiki site for any papers. That is if you do not include any video game type of topic.
With that having been said The point of a peer reviewed paper or article is to have a credible source for information What is a peer-reviewed journal? (02:02). I feel that the articles that I find however, are not all that interesting despite what ever the topic is. Which includes the times that I feel that the citations could be considered dubious. I think over the times that with this University and my prior al a mata that my sources would disappear from existence and I would have to search on the same topic again. This would happen only for me to then again find the first paper that I had cited.
The point is that through correct study and understanding the credible sources lend credence to the topics being discussed. The Author sounds I would say more reasonable than would a wiki because the information had been looked over by someone who is considered an expert int the field. This opposed to a Wiki where many uncredited people may post information.
