Is Your Source Scholarly?

When your instructor or assignment calls for you to use scholarly or peer-reviewed sources, here are some questions to ask as you evaluate the materials you find:

  • Who wrote the article and what authority or credentials do they have?
  • Who published the article and what is their publication process? 
  • When was this published?
  • Who is the intended audience?
  • What references are cited and how are they documented?
