Why Articles?

Articles can be found in publications called magazines, journals, periodicals, newspapers and other publications.

These often can be referred to as serials and have a set, regular publishing schedule e.g. daily, weekly, monthly annually, etc.

Articles are good sources for:

  • Most recent research or information on a topic
  • coverage of a very narrow topic
  • coverage of current events
  • contemporary accounts of past events and research
