Scholarly sources are articles or books written by academic or professional experts, documenting new research findings, new interpretations or new theoretical analysis, in order to advance our knowledge or understanding of a subject.
Finding Scholarly Journals for your assignments
Use of scholarly sources is expected in academic course work. If your lecturer has asked you to use articles from "scholarly journals" or "academic journals" in your assignment you need to use the library's collections to do this. Watch the library's video on Knowing your Scholarly Sources to get started.
