Ever wonder what's going on in the various sections of a scholarly journal article? This page (click on the image below) helps you identify the general purpose of each section and what kind of information you're likely to find there. Remember that you don't have to read the article from beginning to end!
Databases will help you find citations for or even the full text of articles published in journals, magazines and newspapers. These articles can be longer in length and scholarly (research articles and reports), or somewhat shorter (news briefs or book reviews).
