Why use articles?
Journal articles are a great source of quality information for your assignments. Your tutors will often insist you use them in your work. The Wintec Library has both print and online journals available for you.
Pros of journal articles
- Peer-reviewed journal articles have been checked and approved by experts. Articles are usually reliable and of high quality, but you should still watch out for inconsistencies and bias.
- Articles tend to be short but detailed explorations of a specific topic or issue.
- An increasing number are full-text online—you can access them from anywhere.
Cons of journal articles
- Their language can sometimes be very complex and technical as they are intended for an academic audience.
- The narrow focus of articles means you may lose the context of an issue. They are not always useful for general or introductory information.
