Instructors often request that you use research from scholarly or academic journals.
Many articles in journals present in-depth, original research in a specific field of study. These articles have been reviewed by other scholars in the field for scholastic standards and validity.
- Professional journals may also contain profession or industry-related news.
- Sometimes, these articles are called peer reviewed.
Scholarly articles differ from more popular articles available in magazines and newspapers. If you are unsure whether a publication is popular or scholarly, refer to the link below: Identifying Types of Journals.
To find scholarly articles:
- Try JEWL search, found on the Library home page. It covers a variety of subjects.
- By JEWL, you can limit your results to peer-reviewed / scholarly journal articles.
- Walker Library subscribes to a large number of subject specific databases that contain scholarly journal articles.
- For a complete list of databases by subject, use the Databases A-Z list.
