Scholarly (also called academic) articles are very different from news, magazine, and trade articles. If you're new to scholarly journal articles (or need a refresher), watch the How to Tell if an Article is Scholarly or Academic video (3:18 minutes).
Note: The Scholarly Article Analysis worksheet (Word file link) provides questions to help you analyze an article and can be used as a stand alone or while you're reading an article.
