SCHOLARLY VS NON-SCHOLARLY RESOURCES

Sources of information vary and you should be aware of the difference between a scholarly or non-scholarly resource.

Scholarly (peer-reviewed) sources include books and articles published in scholarly journals and books.  These sources are reviewed by a panel of experts in that particular field, and are often published by a professional association or a university press.  These experts ensure the information published is credible before accepting it for publication.

Non-Scholarly sources include websites, magazines, newspapers, and books that undergo no expert review prior to publishing.
