What is an academic article?

Academic articles deal with topics at a higher academic level than newspaper articles.

The world is described based on scientific research and data collection - eg. a study of which business models works best for sharing economy enterprises.

The research is more in-depth than if it were researched by a media company - and is a valid basis for your own empirical data (your field work).
