CORE 110: Academic Voice (Barnett): Articles & More

Types of journals & magazines

Scholarly/peer-reviewed journals are frequently required for academic projects. Many databases allow you to limit your search to these journals.

Some other journals and magazines aren't scholarly/peer reviewed but are generally respected and are acceptable for this paper. However, there is no way to limit your searches to only these types of sources.

Here are just a few of these sources that provide credible news, commentary, interviews and/or informed treatment of issues. These sources have a range of political and editorial biases, so when in doubt, always ask your professor if a particular source is acceptable for your assignment.
