Dear Aacorners,

Back when I was in grad school, people used to describe three main kinds of journal articles, conceptual, theoretical, and empirical. 

I’ve been trying to find something on these three kinds of articles, but I  can’t.

Does this sound familiar to you? If so, how do you describe these? And do you know of anything on the main types of journal articles and the differences among them?
