ANTH 210 Indians of North America: Articles

Why Use Articles?

Why Use Articles?       

Different types of articles give you different flavors of information:

  • Scholarly or Peer-Reviewed or Academic Journal articles are good to find results of scientific or academic research.  They are written for scholars and provide in-depth analysis of a very specific area of your topic  (more info...)
  • Trade Journal articles are good for finding articles written for specific professions (police officer, veterinarian...etc.)  They often analyze new trends, research, tools or techniques important to their area of work  (more info...)
  • Popular Magazine articles are good for summarizing information on a topic for the general public.  They often provide a background, summarize research findings, and provide some analysis of a topic(more info...)
  • Newspaper articles are good for facts and up-to-date information.  They often provide little analysis of a topic. (NOTE: For your Anthro 210 research project, newspapers are not acceptable.)
  • Evaluate articles to determine if they are credible sources for your research
