1.3 Popular, Scholarly, and Trade

 Popular publications inform and entertain the general public. Magazines like Time and Rolling Stone and books like Michael Jackson : Music's Living Legend by Rosemary Wallner, distributed by Rockbottom Books, are examples of popular sources.

 Scholarly publications disseminate research and academic discussion among professionals within disciplines. Journals such as Memory & Cognition and Journal of Abnormal Psychology are examples of scholarly sources.

 Trade publications which are neither scholarly nor popular sources, though sometimes are a combination of both, allow practitioners in specific industries to share market and production information that improves their businesses.
