Love Credo ref, great to share with our students for research papers and general studying. However, I am very disappointed that you are using the term 'research articles' for the Reference entries. This will be confusing to students as their professors will request 'research articles' or scholarly articles meaning journal articles and if the students use a 'research article' from Credo it won't meet the requirements of their assignment. It's important in information literacy to understand the difference between reference materials and journal articles, this will add an unnecessary layer of confusion for students.

Hi Rebecca,
Thank you for your feedback.  I've just sent you an email, but wanted to post here as well in case any other customers wished to add to the conversation!  We chose to use "Research Articles" to describe our content after putting out a survey in our monthly Catching Up with Credo email.  We asked our customers to help us describe our content in a way that their end users would understand.  

The point you bring up about confusion around journal articles is a very good one.  I will bring it back to our product team and as further feedback comes in on this topic, we may reassess the language used on our platform.
