Sometimes your instructor will require that you find a scholarly journal article. What is this and how do you know if you've found one?
Scholarly sources are research articles published in scholarly journals. These articles report on original research conducted by researchers, who are sharing their research with other experts. This is how researchers in academic fields share their findings to one another, and how they build knowledge based on previous research.
To determine if a journal is considered scholarly, look for whether:
Research articles published in scholarly journals are peer-reviewed, or refereed. Peer-review is a rigorous process where articles are evaluated by a panel of experts in the field (peers in the author's field).
