A peer reviewed article is written by an expert in that field, and reviewed by other experts before publication.  The peer review process checks the information and research methods to ensure accuracy.  Popular or newspaper articles are written by journalists and reviewed by editors, but not necessarily people who have studied the subject they are writing about.
