JOURNAL ARTICLES:

Journal articles are written by researchers or scholars who work in a professional or in an academic field.

An editorial board evaluates articles submitted. Subject specialists decide whether or not the article adds valuable, important or new information to the subject and whether or not the researchs has been conducted correctly, academically and in an ethical or moral way. Articles thus reviewed or examined are called ‘peer reviewed’.

Journal articles quote sources to substantiate information or statements and also to have an academic reading list of sources consulted for writing the article.

Consult journal articles:

  • For scholarly or academic information
  • For subject specific articles in your field of study
  • For subject specific articles on a topic (The topic can be large or very specific dealing with a small aspect or part of a topic.)
  • For new research
  • For research only published in journals
  • For criticism or comparison of ideas, thoughts, etc.
