When you search the library's periodical databases, most articles in your results are either from a newspaper, magazine, or journal.

  • A magazine article is a great source of information and analysis on current events and issues. 
  • Magazines may offer opinion.
  • Most magazine articles are written by journalists for a general adult audience. 
  • They tend to be longer and more substantive than newspaper articles, but more accessible than scholarly articles.
