Many research assignments require you to use articles from Scholarly or Peer-Reviewed Journals. Scholarly journals publish original, scientific research, written by professional scientists for an audience of other scientists.
But scholarly journals do NOT provide basic background information, because they are intended for an audience that is already well-informed.
If you just want basic information, you need a Popular source, like a magazine, newspaper, or blog. As their name implies, popular sources are written to inform and entertain the general public. Popular Magazines don't requires readers to have specialized knowledge of any topic.
