About Journal Articles

 

Journal articles treat specific and narrow topics, they’re much briefer than books, and are published in a “journal” along with other articles.

Before an article is published it goes through a quality control process called ‘peer review’.

Most journal articles present original research and analysis, so they are called research articles, or primary research articles. A different kind of article is the review article, which summarizes and synthesizes work that has already been done in the field. Review articles are a good place to find a summary of a topic.
