What is a journal article?

A journal is similar to a magazine. Issues are available at regular intervals, such as every month or every quarter.

Journals contain pieces of writing or research called journal articles.

Often, journals are peer-reviewed or scholarly. This means each article goes through an evaluation process to test it's accuracy, credibility and so on. Peer-reviewed/scholarly articles are usually of a high academic standard.
