Scholarly Sources

What is a scholarly source?

A scholarly source is material written by an expert or experts (scholarly articles will often have multiple authors) for other experts. If a journal is peer reviewed, that means scholars in the field looked at the material and made comments or recommendations before it could be published, this process ensures that the information is more credible than, say, a website like Yahoo Answers or Reddit. Often these scholarly, peer reviewed articles describe a study that was done, including the objectives and outcomes.
