Try the NCSU's interactive Anatomy of a Scholarly Article!
When you look at a scholarly article, it has certain pieces that should be present. As noted above, look for the Journal information, the Title, the Authors, the Abstract. Also, as the article continues, keep your eyes out for an Introduction, a Methods section, a Results section, a Discussion, and References (at the end).
