Journal Articles: Summary

Research or scholarly articles generally have several characteristics that define them. They:

  • Are written by and for academic faculty, researchers, and/or experts
  • Use technical or field-specific vocabulary
  • Give full bibliographic references (AKA a "Works Cited List")
  • Are published mostly in academic journals, with titles like the American Journal of Sociology
  • Are generally sober and serious in tone
  • May have charts, graphs, and tables but are not glossy and colorful like magazines
  • Often report results of research

The most prestigious research articles are "peer-reviewed," meaning they are edited by an expert panel.
