Journal Articles/Research Databases
A scholarly journal is written for an audience of professionals/researchers in a particular field. These journals contain scholarly articles.
A professional/researcher relies on these publications in order to understand what is being studied in their discipline, and when developing and conducting their own research. As a student, part of your job is to learn about what is being currently studied and learn how original research is conducted.
