# What is the difference between an **Article** and a **Paper**? [closed]

What is the difference between an Article and a Paper? Is there anybody(or journal) which will evaluate our article?

My thought

I am thinking that an article is just explaining or giving details of some discussions in our own way with out change the idea of working. But paper is giving some new idea for a proof or new approach to the discussion or discovering the truth.

Is it correct?

One more Question Is any guide needed for article and paper?

• There are definite and indefinite articles, but no one is produced from wood, as paper is. ;-) – Przemysław Scherwentke Dec 12 '14 at 6:59

No, there is no difference: the two words are used interchangeably. ${}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}$
