journal articles
  • Scholarly journals (or peer reviewed) have

  • Scholarly journals always cite their sources in
    the form of footnotes or bibliographies.
  • Articles are written by a scholar in the field or
    by someone who is recognised in the area.
  • The language of scholarly journals is that of the
    discipline covered.
  • They assume the reader has some scholarly
    background on the topic discussed.
  • Scholarly journals report on original research
    (or experimentation) in order to make such
    information available to the rest of the
    scholarly world
  • You can find these in databases e.g ABI or
