TRADE            
Trade publications are similar to Popular magazines, but they are focused on the interests of a particular trade or industry.  
       
     
  Look for:          
 
  • Authors: may be journalists or experts.
  • Articles: practical advice for the profession or industry they cover.
  • Appearance: usually contains pictures and illustrations. Multiple advertisements or classifieds may be present.
  • News: contain news about people and trends specific to the profession or trade.
  • Publisher: may be published commercially or by an organization.
