Selecting Articles

Instructors expect you to use professional and/ or scholarly articles for many assignments.  Consumer health magazines and websites will not provide the expert, professional, research-based information they require. 

Even within the professional and scholarly literature, different kinds of articles are written for different purposes and audiences.  Contents imay include news, brief research reports, editorials, letters, commentaries, and book reviews in addition to longer research studies. 

Focus on selecting the articles that best meet your information needs and satisfy the requirements of your assignment.
