Why Trade journals are useful?

Trade magazines are published for people working in a specific industry, profession, or trade, and can also be useful for any researcher. Articles are often focused on current trends and practical issues. The writers are industry experts and other professionals and their credentials are usually listed. Trade publications can sometimes offer a specific "insider" perspective that cannot be found elsewhere.
