What’s a “research article,” anyway?
« on: November 03, 2014, 10:17:27 AM »
When scientists and other scholars want to make the results of their work public, they usually begin by publishing them in a scholarly journal with a title like New England Journal of Medicine, or Journal of Cell Biology.
What is and isn’t in a research article?

Research articles will usually contain:

    a summary or “abstract”
    a description of the research
    the results they got
    the significance of the results.

Research articles are not good places to find:

    basic summaries
    general introductions to a topic

They are the best way to access:

    The most recent, “cutting edge” research
    Authoritative information about older research
