Scholarly peer-reviewed journal articles:

  • Contain very current information
  • Report the latest primary research and the important developments in a field
  • Are the medium of communication for scholars
  • Contain lengthy bibliographies of related research
  • Contain information on narrow, specific topics

Using them will give you a solid foundation to back up what you want to say in your essays/reports.
