What is Scholarly?

When your instructor asks you to find "scholarly" articles, what does that mean? Scholarly articles:

  • contain a bibliography or list of references
  • are written by scholars or researchers in a particular field
  • are often longer than 5 pages
  • use complex language, specific to a field
  • may contain charts or graphs with data


What is NOT Scholarly?
