What are Scholarly Sources?

A scholarly source is one in which the content is written by experts in a particular field of study - generally for the purpose of sharing original research or analyzing others' findings. The primary audience for this sort of work is fellow experts and students studying the field. As a result the content is typically much more sophisticated and advanced than articles found in more popular sources.

In brief, scholarly work is:

  • written by experts for experts
  • based on original research or intellectual inquiry
  • provides citations for all sources used
  • is usually peer reviewed prior to publication
