Scholarly journals contain peer-reviewed articles which report original research or provide in-depth analysis.  The language is technical.  Graphs, tables, and references are included.  They are written by professors, researchers, and scholars.

Popular periodicals cover current topics, written in everyday language, including color images, and rarely cite sources.  They are written by journalists.
