When you select articles for research, you may need to make a distinction between scholarly and popular material.
Scholarly or academic journals are usually published by a university or institution and contain research or specific information. They frequently use peer review as a method of selecting articles for publication.
Popular magazines are usually commercial, written for a general audience and contain current news. They can include secondary commentaries on research.
