1. Scientific Journals
Scientific journals are periodicals that contain scientific research published to share discoveries and current developments within a given field of science. Scientific journals may be general interest, meaning they target a wide range of audience from lay people to experts in the field, or more specialized by nature, with a limited readership base. Scientific journals vary in their “impact” factor and will usually have the following things:
– Aim and Scope – Aims and Scope of a journal describe the area(s) that it covers, such as specific research topics or geographical region. These can be general or quite narrow, for example some journals focus solely on cellular research, while others may focus on specific cancers such as breast cancer.
– Frequency of Publication – Scientific journals vary in their “frequency” or how often they publish articles. Some scientific journals publish articles monthly, such as Scientific Reports (Impact Factor = 5). Other scientific journals may only publish select issues every couple of years, with a broad range of articles, such as Circulation Research (Impact Factor = 11). Scientific Journals that publish monthly are usually referred to as “quarterly” journals. Scientific journals that publish select issues every couple of years or less often are called “bi-monthly” journals.
