Respiratory Therapy - South Bend-Elkhart

Using articles

When you use articles in our collections, you want to be sure you're using them well. Following a few simple guidelines can help you get the most our of your research,

  • Journals are best used to get detailed and technical information about a topic. When you want research about medical conditions, treatments, or new techniques a peer-reviewed journal offers the highest standard.
  • Newspapers and magazines are best used to get current events, news, and public opnion. If you want to see how people are reacting to the latest health craze or what is going on in a country these are your best bet.
  • Trade Publications offer more focused news that general magazines, usually tied to a specific industry or profession. They can be a good place to look for jobs, find new techniques, equiptment, or ideas but they lack the rigorous standards that peer-reviewed journals use so are not as useful when it comes to reporting the effects or details of techniques and treatments.
