Scholarly sources are academic, research oriented and often published by university presses. They are intended for university-level study and research, and are often preferred when writing university-level essays.
What is the peer review process?
Peer-reviewed articles are reviewed by a group of peers (other experts in the field). Content is approved by the committee of peers before it is published.
Recognizing scholarly publications.
With experience you will learn to recognize peer reviewed and scholarly journals by the nature of the articles, authors and other characteristics. While you are learning you can also use tools such as Ulrich's Periodical Directory to verify if a journal is scholary or peer-reviewed.
