Why Use a Magazine, Journal or Newspaper Article?

Magazines, journals and newspapers:

  • Provide detailed information about a specific aspect of a topic.
  • Report on events, issues or scholarly research.

Magazines, journals and newspapers typically do NOT provide a summary or overview of a topic.

Use an encyclopedia to find a summary or overview of a topic.
