Peer-Reviewed Journal Articles
Peer-reviewed journal articles are those most likely to be required for Emory class assignments, because these articles have been written by scholars for other scholars and reviewed by subject-matter experts. These articles also include citations to other scholarly works. Examples include articles from the scholarly journals International Journal of Entrepreneurship & Innovation Management, The New England Journal of Medicine, and Behavioral and Brain Sciences.
Newspaper/Magazine articles (often called “popular” articles) are written for a general audience rather than for scholars or professionals and include information about very recent events/topics as well as local information and opinions about issues. Examples include The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, People, and Rolling Stone.
Professional/trade articles are written by professionals in the field OR by staff writers. The articles are only reviewed by editors for style, so they go through a less rigorous review process than scholarly, peer-reviewed articles. Examples of professional/trade journals include The Harvard Business Review, Engineering and Mining Journal, and American Biology Teacher.
Most articles are available electronically. For information on accessing articles, see Journals and Newspapers and the FAQ about finding peer-reviewed articles.
