What is a Trade Publication

A trade (also sometimes called professional) publication is written by professionals in a particular field for people working in that field. It will often include information on current trends, company information, and professional news. Articles tend to be practical, as opposed to the theoretical or research based information you find in scholarly sources. Please see the Periodical/Journal chart for a more in depth description.
