In publishing, an article is a piece of nonfictional prose that is an independent part of a publication (such as a book, journal, magazine, or newspaper).


In academia, articles are generally written with the intent to publish in journals in order to contribute to the larger body of knowledge of which the topic of the article is a part of.


Also published in journals, reports and books, research articles contribute to the body of scientific knowledge.


Collaboration is a common method for the authorship of both academic and research articles.
