What are scholarly articles?

What are scholarly articles? What's peer-reviewed? What's a refereed article? And, why do I have to use those in my paper?

  • A scholarly (or peer-reviewed or refereed) article is an article that was written by experts in a particular discipline. These types of articles are reviewed by other experts in the field before they are published. A few examples are the American Journal of Psychology, Contemporary Literature, and Journal of Nutrition, Health, and Aging.

Why do I have to use scholarly articles in my paper?

  • Since scholarly articles have been reviewed by experts they are more reliable and credible than articles in popular resources. 
  • Scholarly articles also introduce you to research methods and practices for your field.
  • Scholarly articles have bibliographies, which can often provide you with related articles to further expand your search.
