The Research Desk: Tips on Digging into Scholarly Research Journals


Some think of scholarly or academic journals and the articles they contain as boring, not easy to read, and not useful if you’re not an academic. While this might be the case for some articles, the belief that this is the case for all articles in all publications is wrong. Academic and scholarly publications can be of tremendous value to the journalist and researcher. Why? Here are a few reasons:

  • They help identify experts in a specific field;
  • They act as an early warning system, providing information on stories, technologies, and trends that the public will be engaged in during both the near future and long term;
  • They can provide or lead you to data on key issues.
