Finding & Using Articles

Using Magazines Articles

Magazines can usually be divided into two categories: news magazines and popular magazines.

News magazines are normally published for a general audience to inform the public about events, activities, political issues, and general interest topics. Examples include: Maclean’s and Newsweek.

Popular magazines are written for recreational reading or for general interest and entertainment (e.g., magazines about popular fashion and beauty, movies, sports, people and celebrities).  Generally, popular magazines are not useful for research assignments.  Examples include Canadian Living, People, and Sports Illustrated.
