A scholarly journal is a periodical that contains articles written by experts in a particular field of study and reports the results of research in that field. The articles are intended to be read by other experts or students of the field, and they are typically much more sophisticated and advanced than the articles found in general magazines.
A magazine article usually consists of stories aimed at the general reading public.
These resources simultaneously search several reference sources (encyclopedias, dictionaries,
and more), providing quick access to reliable facts.
