  • Articles in periodicals often provide the latest news or thought on a particular topic.
  • Scholarly journal articles typically analyze more specific topics than books do.
  • They are the primary means by which scholars in the natural sciences and most social sciences publish their research.

A note on peer-review

Peer-reviewed articles are articles that have been evaluated by the writer's professional colleagues or peers.  The idea is that the reviewers will judge the writer on scholarly standards within the field by examining the research methodology, style, ethics, etc. 

Most academic databases will allow you to find peer-reviewed articles by simply checking a box as you refine your search.
