About Scholarly Journals

Professors often specify that your sources need to include articles from "scholarly" or peer-reviewed journals. How can you tell if a journal is "scholarly"?

Here are some tips for evaluating a journal by its content, and a shortcut of two for limiting your search results to the right kinds of materials:

  • Who publishes this journal?  
  • Who writes for this journal?  
  • What is the writing like?  
  • Are the conclusions supported by evidence?  
  • How did you get to this article in the first place?
