Conference Proceedings
Primary Journal Articles
Textbooks, & Reference Sources
Background research is completed and new data is gathered in the lab or field. Often this information has not been viewed by anyone other than the researchers.
The "invisible" network of colleagues and friends that a researcher might share and discuss their findings with.
Letters from the researcher to a journal sharing the initial findings from their research. Even if these appear in peer-reviewed journals, the letters are often only editorially reviewed.
Scientists share their findings with a group of similar experts. Many conference proceedings are peer-reviewed before acceptance to the conference.
The major source for scientific information, primary journal articles include background research, data, and analysis. These are written by the scientists who conducted the research and are the main channel for sharing scientific discoveries.
These articles summarize and synthesize information from multiple primary articles. They can identify themes and trends across research. These types of sources can also "catch you up" on the relevant research in an area.
Review Articles
These sources often relate to the core understandings of a topic. Information has often been reviewed and tested many times before inclusion. Focused, raw data is often not included, but background and analysis may be given in great detail.
