Using Different Kinds of Information


Academic journals contain articles and research, and tend to focus on one topic. Articles go through a rigorous editorial process, and are typically read by a committee of editors or experts in the field, who examine the article for accuracy and relevance. Academic journals are intended for a sophisticated readership: most readers of academic journals have some familiarity with the topics covered.

Use academic journals to look for research studies and critical writing on a broad range of topics.
