Trade Publications

Most fields have, along with professional or trade associations, publications (newsletters, magazines and journals) that people read to stay current in the field. So an English teacher might read College English or Teaching English in the Two Year College.  A farmer may read Illinois Farm Reports or Prairie Farmer. An Occupational Therapist would read OT Practice or American Journal of Occupational Therapy.

Trade publications are usually limited to a specific field and may have ads, continuing education info and more. Professional publications are more likely to be scholarly reports of research in the field.

Use Journal Finder to browse publications in a specific field.

Select "Trade Publications" in Academic Search Complete or other databases.
