♦ Newspapers contain articles on current and local events and issues, as well as on topics of current interest.
♦ The coverage is often brief and usually at a fairly general level of detail.
♦ Newspapers also include editorial and opinion articles where authors argue their stance on an issue.
♦ Newspaper articles are usually written by reporters for a general audience.
♦ Sources are rarely cited and can be difficult to track down.
♦ Since news articles are usually shallow treatments of a topic and often biased, they should be used along with more authoritative sources such as scholarly books and articles, and reports and other research-based resources from government agencies and research organizations.
