Q. How can you tell the difference between an academic journal and a piece of general writing?


Academic journals, in most cases, have plain covers, with little or no advertising.

Journal articles begin with an abstract and authors cite their sources. The author will also have an institutional affiliation, such as with a university or think tank.

For more information see our Journal Articles resource.
