Evidence found in newspaper, magazine and journal articles is more specific than background information and support your arguments. Here's the different types of sources you will see in Business databases:
A magazine article may go through and editorial process, but it is not generally as accurate or intense as the peer review process. An example of a Business magazine is the The Economist.
A trade publication is usually published by and for the trade/industry itself. It generally does not have peer review or intense editorial oversight. An example of a trade publication is Marketing Week.
A newspaper is a timely publication, often daily or weekly, and may not be necessarily unbiased. It is written for a general audience. An example of a newspaper that focuses on Business is the Wall Street Journal.
Remember to read an article's abstract or introduction to get a summary or short overview of the article. You can avoid reading the whole article if it is not relevant to your topic!
