Find Scholarly Journals or Magazine Articles
What is a scholarly journal?
A scholarly journal includes articles written by experts in the field for researchers in the field. Authors include professors, doctors, and researchers. Scholarly journal articles almost always focus on a very specific aspect of a broader subject, so use these after narrowing your topic sufficiently.
What makes a magazine different from a scholarly journal?
Magazine articles are written for the general public, and are written by journalists rather than scholars. Journalists often synthesize the jargon contained in complicated scholarly journals, and write articles that are easily understood by the general population.
