Types of Publications
Trade Journals are industry specific news publications
written for professionals in a given field.
Articles are often short, but very current. These
publications can be very helpful for market research.
Popular magazines are designed to inform readers
with varied backgrounds about a variety of current issues.
They are the least formal in scope and tone.
Scholarly Journals are peer-reviewed and
written by subject experts. Articles are detailed
and often contain jargon.
Searching for articles is an excellent way to find information on up and coming markets and products.
