TYPES OF ARTICLES
- Magazine and newspaper articles aim to entertain and inform.
- They discuss current news and information on popular topics (politics, economic trends, global issues, etc.), report on industry trends, new products, and new techniques, and may include eye-witness accounts.
- These articles are written for a more general audience by journalists, freelance writers, editorial staff, or specialists in a certain field of study.
- Journal articles aim to inform/report on original research done by scholars and experts.
- They are written by subject specialists and experts in the field, and are intended for a limited audience (researchers, scholars, and experts).
- These research-based reports include references and follow a general format (abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, and conclusion).
- They are considered academic sources and may be scholarly and/or peer-reviewed (reviewed by the author’s peers).
