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.
