Michigan Wine and Enology Research Guide: Article Research

This guide identifies scholarly information and Michigan-regional resources on wine science, i.e. enology.

Articles - the basics

Articles contain the most current information published in a field of study. The Library Catalog contains the titles to all of the print and electronic format journals to which we subscribe.  The Catalog does not list the articles within the journals.  The specific articles can be found in article databases.

Most professors and researchers prefer articles that are "scholarly" or "peer-reviewed" in nature.  Characteristics of scholarly journals are that they have the following qualities:

  • The articles contain original research (such as scientific experiments, surveys and research studies)
  • A list of references or sources is provided at the end of each article
  • An editorial board, composed of experts in the field, reviews articles to decide whether they should be accepted; this is also known as "refereed," "peer-reviewed," "professional," or "academic".
  • Uses a specialized vocabulary for that field.
  • Contain few if any advertisements. If included, they are highly specialized and specific to scholarly discipline (i.e. specific laboratory equipment, medical tools and drugs).
