Please be familiar with what constitutes as a scholarly source. 

  • Periodicals are things that are published on a regular basis with a fixed interval between the issues. Journals, magazines and newspapers are types of periodicals.

  • Most instructors at the college level require that the majority of the periodical articles you use in writing a research paper come from scholarly journals.

  • Scholarly Journals are also known as professional, peer reviewed or refereed journals. They contain articles that have been reviewed (refereed) by the author’s peers — usually the editor and one or more specialists in the individual field of research — before approval is given to publish.

  • The library’s periodicals are available in a variety of formats. Some are available only in paper form, while others must be accessed online or on microform. Some are available in more than one format.

    Characteristics of Scholarly Journals

    Although there is no clear-cut definition of a “scholarly journal,” the following guidelines give some clues to help you tell the difference between scholarly journals and other kinds of periodicals. If in doubt, ask your instructor or a librarian.

  • The articles often include an abstract (summary) of the article prior to the main text of the article.

  • Scholarly journals are often published by a specific professional organization.

  • Scholarly journals usually have a somber, serious appearance and often contain graphs or charts, but few glossy pictures or photographs.

  • Scholarly journals always cite their sources in the form of footnotes or bibliographies.

  • Articles published in scholarly journals report on original research or experiments (as opposed to news or opinion pieces based on someone else’s findings).

  • Articles published in scholarly journals are written by a scholar in a particular field of study or by someone who has done research in that field.

  • The author’s name will appear at the beginning or the end of the article.

  • The language of scholarly journals is technical and specialized because the articles are written for other scholars and not for the general public.

  • Scholarly journals often (but not always) have titles with words like “Quarterly,” “Journal,” “Review,” or “Proceedings.”

  • Scholarly journals are often published by universities or professional societies.

  • Scholarly journals are indexed mostly (but not only) in subject-specific databases. For example, the best place to find scholarly psychology-related journal articles is the PsycINFO database because it specializes in psychology-related literature. The best place to find scholarly nursing-related journal articles is the CINAHL database because it specializes in nursing-related literature.

  • If there is not a subject-specific database for your topic, try one of the general-purpose databases like EBSCOhost Academic Search Premiere or InfoTrac Academic ASAP.

  • If you want to find scholarly articles only, click the limiter that says “Peer Reviewed” or “Refereed” before you search (if the database you are using has such a limiter).
