What is a "Scholarly" Source?

Scholarly sources aka academic scholarship tends to come from people (like your professors) producing knowledge within the university system, and is written primarily for an academic community, or others in the field who are engaging in ongoing scholarly conversation:

  • Look for the author's credentials or institutional affiliation.
  • The authors may use highly specialized language, specific to a discipline or area of study.
  • The writing Includes extensive citations, bibliographies, or footnotes, showing the author is aware of a body of scholarship relevant to the field.
  • The content has been published by an academic institution or university press.
  • The author's work is often "peer reviewed" or has gone through a rigorous editorial process by fellow experts in the field.
