Step #1 Make sure it is a peer reviewed journal
Reading Scholarly Journal Articles
Scholarly articles are published in peer reviewed journals, issued by academic institutions or professional organizations. These scholarly articles are complex – not easy reading – and comprehending them requires attentiveness and practice. The authors are scholars, researchers, and experts in a given field of study who usually assume the reader has some prior knowledge of the topic, since the primary audience are readers familiar with this field: scholars, researchers, professors, and students.These journal articles may have different purposes: a review article, a theory building article, a meta analysis, or an empirical research article (the kind most often read by students). Scholarly articles of all types include thorough documentation of primary and/or secondary research, since the article’s main purposes are to contribute the findings from original or experimental research to the existing body of knowledge, to help answer important questions, and to advance scholarly conversations in the discipline.
Step #2 Make sure it is a research article not an article reviewWhat’s the difference between a research article and a review article?Research articles, sometimes referred to as empirical or primary sources, report on original research. They will typically include sections such as an introduction, methods, results, and discussion.Review articles, sometimes called literature reviews or secondary sources, synthesize or analyze research already conducted in primary sources. They generally summarize the current state of research on a given topic.Research article follow this standard format:AbstractProvides a summary of the article, including the results or findings IntroductionPoses a research question or hypothesisEstablishes why this question or issue mattersProvides background and gives limits of the study Literature ReviewUpdates the reader on previous scholarship on this topic (Note: the extent of the literature review varies, depending on topic and type of journal) Research MethodDiscusses hypothesis being tested or research question being investigatedDescribes strategies for research: qualitative (interviews, surveys, person-to-person research, or observation) and/or quantitative (data garnered via measurements) Results or FindingsPresents data from the research (may use tables or charts to present data) DiscussionInterprets the findings or results and applies them to the research questionExplains what was learned, why it matters, and what is left inconclusiveConclusion(s)Presents implications of the researchGives suggestions for further study Bibliography
