What is a Scholarly Article? In any course you take, professors are going to ask you to find scholarly articles for various papers and projects. One way to assess whether an article is scholarly is if it: Comes from a professional, peer-reviewed publication (e.g., journals, government reports such as FDA, CDC). Contains references for sources cited so they show where their information is obtained. Written by a professional or scholar in the field and indicates credentials of the author(s), and is no more than 5 years old. Most nursing, science, and social science journals meet these criteria. If an article seems too simplistic or is a brief summary, look for other references. Don’t stop the hunt for your information. Newspaper articles and lay person literature (Readers Digest, Healthy Life Magazine, Food and Fitness) can be sources for background about your topic for a project, but are not considered scholarly.
