Comparing Research and Review Articles

A Research Article is the reporting of specific original empirical research carried out through experiments, surveys and other methodologies. These are carefully documented in the article as are the results of the research. Research Articles are considered Primary sources in the sciences. 

A Review Article is a summary or overview of existing research on a particular topic or discipline. These are considered Secondary sources.


BOTH Research and Review Articles can be found in Peer Reviewed or Refereed Journals.
