Basic Expectations: At
least 3 full pages with 6 sources. Observations that are based on at least 3
articles from a professional mag AND academic journal NOT observations based on
1 article from each.
Quotes vs. italics and
capitalization: Journal and mag titles=italics. Article titles=quotation marks.
Capitalize all major words in titles.
Overview
This
assignment will expose you to two types of professional sources in your field.
You will research and make observations about the similarities and differences
between professional magazines and academic journals. To do so, you will
first have to find an academic journal in your field; since you already found a
professional magazine for our first assignment, you already have that. You can
access some journals online and also through KCC databases. You
must read three articles from the prof mag and three from the academic journal
before making your observations. Then, you will develop a claim regarding the
similarities and the differences and ultimately write your paper to defend this
claim using support from all of these articles.
Specifics (Include the headings below when you write the
paper)
I. Introduction: Introduce both publications (their titles
go in italics) and state who the target audience is of each (you can research
this; remember, it won’t be the general public. These are written for professionals
in certain fields.) There is no need to name all of the articles you will be
using in the paper at this time. End with your claim about the similarities and
the differences in the conventions.
{For example: While both the English Teaching Professional magazine
and College English journal
are written for English instructors, it’s fairly evident that College English targets
college professors based on the content, extensive research, and formality
whereas, English
Teaching Professional targets high school and college
instructors who want practical advice on teaching.}
II. The Professional Magazine: Open this
paragraph by sharing your overall impression of the magazine: what kinds of
information is included in it and who specifically would be interested in, and
benefit from, this information? Also, provide the titles of the 3 articles you
reviewed. Article titles should be in quotations marks and capitalize all major
words in the title. Also, discuss the following: (NOTE: you don’t need to answer the
following questions separately for each article. Instead, skim your 3 articles
and base your answers on all 3):
-The
credentials/backgrounds of the authors of the articles, if provided.
-The
average length of the articles
-Types
of sources cited. Name some specific ones. -Any
visuals included like graphs, charts, or images? Describe some specific ones.
-How
are the articles organized? Any section headings, for example?
-Tone
of the writing (formal, informal).
-Provide
some examples of any jargon used (terminology used in this profession).
-Any
other observations. III. The Academic Journal: Open this
paragraph by sharing your overall impression of the journal: what kinds of
information is included in it and who specifically would be interested in, and
benefit from, this information? Also, provide the titles of the 3 articles you
reviewed. Article titles should be in quotations marks and capitalize all major
words in the title. Also, discuss the following: (NOTE: you don’t need to answer the
following questions separately for each article. Instead, skim your 3 articles
and base your answers on all 3):
-The
credentials/backgrounds of the authors of the articles, should be provided.
-The
average length of the articles (should be quite long…if not, you might not be
looking at a journal)?
-Types
of sources cited. Name some specific ones.
-Any
visuals included like graphs, charts, or images?
-How
are the articles organized? Any section headings, for example?
-Tone
of the writing (formal, informal)?
-Provide
some examples of any jargon used (terminology used in this profession).
IV. Conclusion: Discuss your personal impression of these publications. As
a future professional in this field, do you find either/both interesting?
Helpful? Educational? If you were asked to contribute an article to one of
them, what would you like to write about, AND in what way would that topic fit
in with the purpose/content of the publication. Be as specific as possible.
Length: at least 3 pages plus a Works Cited, 6 sources.

harder to gain access to online (you normally have to pay for a subscription to
them), Tracy Conner, a KCC Librarian, has put together various resources to
