Articles are typically found in journals, magazines and newspapers. The
articles found in journals are primarily published for an academic or
scholarly audience and are usually peer-reviewed, while newspaper and
magazine articles are more often written for the general public.
Article databases will help you identify journal, magazine and
newspaper articles on your topic. Colorado State University Library has

Finding Professional Literature
