Scholarly journal articles are likely to be different in tone and scope than anything you've ever encountered before. This is because scholarly articles are not written for an audience of undergraduate students! They are written primarily by scholars (usually university professors) for other scholars. They use jargon from their professional fields without bothering to define these terms for your average person. As a result, scholarly journal articles can be difficult to understand.
