Articles versus Essays?

Q. What's the difference between articles and essays?

A.  Articles are published in journals while essays are individually authored chapters of edited books. In Atla they are distinguished by looking at publication type, either article or essay. For an article the source will be a journal title whereas the source for an essay will be a book title. Atla has many full text articles, but no full text essays. You will need to search Rolfing Search or I-Share to find a copy of the book in which the essay is published.
