Find Articles

Not all articles are the same-- here are the different types you might find, and pros/cons of using each:

  • news articles: provide brief snippets of info; best for finding current info; watch out for the date to make sure it's not old, out-of-date info
  • magazine articles: provide more detailed info, but still digestible to the average reader; opinion, or viewpoints are often present in magazine articles
  • scholarly/academic articles: written by researches/professors/experts; double-checked by other experts for quality before publication; does not give basic info or definitions, gives high-level info that might mean you have to look things up while you're reading; they take a long time to publish, so not the best place for super up-to-date info
