  5. 5. Features of Scholarly Articles<br />Published in professional, research, or academic journals (either in print or online)<br />Rarely with colorful presentation or ads<br />Written by and for faculty, researchers, and scholars in a particular field of study; they often are affiliated with a research or academic institution<br />Formal, technical, or scientific language or jargon<br />

  17. 17. Other Considerations<br />Both magazine and journal articles can be good sources for your work<br />When selecting articles, think about how you intend to use the information: <br />Do you want background on a topic new to you? (use magazines) <br />Did your teacher say to cite scholarly resources? (use academic journals) <br />Often a combination of the two will be most effective for undergraduate research<br />
