Trade Journals

Could you please explain what a Trade Journal is? I have seen it appear as a different source type alongside scholarly journals and dissertations and am uncertain about what they are definitionally.

Hi, Jarrod:

Trade journals are current news and trends for a specific industry. Articles are written by someone with knowledge in that field for other practitioners. The target audiences are professionals in that field. They are not peer reviewed.



Thank you!
