Scholarly/Peer Reviewed vs Non-Scholarly Resources

Your instructor may ask you to use only scholarly resources for your paper.

Scholarly (peer-reviewed) sources include books and articles published in scholarly journals, encyclopedias, 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. 
  • The 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.
