Why Use Journal Articles?

Scholarly journal articles are important sources of information offering:

  • Originality.  Provides new evidence and interpretations.

  • Authoritativeness.  Written by researchers for their peers.

  • Documentation.  Cites key scholarship in footnotes that you can check.

  • Reliability.  Reviewed by editors for significance and accuracy.

  • Conciseness.  Presents an argument directly since length is often limited to 40 pages or less.

  • Engagement.  Responds to issues and adds to an ongoing dialog.

  • Currency.  Treats recent issues more quickly than books due to publishing schedules
