What Are Long-Form Articles?

Long-form articles allow journalists additional page space to explore issues in greater depth than they can in the shorter, standard articles that makeup the bulk of their publications. Long-form articles generally require significant research, interviews, and/or investigation and are often special features within a publication. Below are some examples of well-known magazines and news sources where long-form articles may be found.

These databases have varying year coverage, so pay close attention to the information under the links to find the year you need. If you are off-campus you will be asked to log-in using your NetID and password.
