Here are some things to look for:

*It should be rather long. It will most certainly be more than 5 pages long and probably more than 10 pages.

*It should include author affiliations. After the names of the author(s) you will see a reference to where they are working. This is often a university.

*The wording of the article will include vocabulary that is specific to that particular field.

*There will be an extensive bibliography included with the article.
