Types of Articles

There are a variety of articles available to you through the library. There are two main types of articles you will likely use in your research. Popular Articles, which are intended for a general audience, and Scholarly Articles, which are intended for the academic community.

Popular Articles include newspaper and magazine articles, while Scholarly Articles are typically referred to as academic journal articles or peer-reviewed articles.
