What is a scholarly article?
Often, for research in a university, you will be asked to find scholarly articles. Our LibGuides have an explanation of the difference between scholarly and popular articles.
Many databases include an option to limit your search to "scholarly journals" or "peer-reviewed" articles. These can be helpful to narrow your search, but remember to look critically at your results (using information from the LibGuide link above) to make sure the articles meet the critera your professor is looking for.
