The Information Cycle

When looking for articles or news, consider the time it takes for something to be written.

Newspapers and news magazines are the first to come out, often on the same day as an event or product launch. These articles are typically short, written for a general audience, and provide just the basics.

Trade journals contain articles written by experts in a particular industry or business. These articles tend to be current and often include a discussion of trends and products that affect the direction of the field.

Scholarly journals contain expert analysis on topics or issues. Many of them are peer-reviewed before publication and thus provide some of the most in-depth coverage on a topic. These publications tend to be longer, more accurate, and often contain information that is more technical and/or scientific.
