SCHOLARLY ARTICLESAuthors are authorities in their fields. Articles are written for other researchers or for serious students of the subject.Individual issues have little or no advertising. Articles are usually reports of scholarly research.Illustrations usually take the form of charts and graphs. Articles use formal language or the jargon of the discipline. Articles must go through a peer-review or refereed process (review by two or more experts before being approved for publication). Authors cite their sources in endnotes, footnotes, or bibliographies.
