« on: July 14, 2011, 12:15:44 AM »
Articles: Research articles with a few pages (2-30).  They are usually very specialized and the issue they explain or solve is very specified.

Letters: This category is within Articles category.  Sometimes they are called "fast communications" or "short communications".  Contain revelant results of topics in which several groups are competing, and are brief and quick.  Often when a group publishs a letter, later published another longer article, explain details were not included in the letter.

Sample: the famous Alpha, Beta, Gamma article "The origin of chemical elements" about chemicals elements formation on Big Bang:

Reviews (review state of art): Update articles or review articles, usually are very large (100-200 pages) and include a high number of bibliographic references.  These publications are very useful when we are starting in a research field.  They give us a entire vision of that field, we will can know that issues have been solved and which have not.  When we starting in a research topic is important to study all reviews availables about it to avoid repeating errors and to do not do something that it is already done.
