Why use magazine, newspaper or scholarly journal articles?

Articles provide information on very specific, narrow topics. The Library purchases article databases so you may access articles for your topic – for free. Researchers use them when they need:

  • Magazines and Newspapers: Brief coverage of contemporary events written to all levels of readers.
  • Peer Reviewed/Scholarly Journals: Reports of research or scholarship on specific topics written by scholars to other scholars
    • What does peer-review mean?
      • The review of commercial, professional, or academic efficiency, competence, etc., by others in the same occupation -Oxford English Dictionary
