Scholarly journals have content that has been written by scholars or experts in their field. The most authoritative scholarly journals are peer reviewed.

The best place to find scholarly sources is the Academic Search Complete database (must be on campus or have a COM ID to access off campus.) To get scholarly articles all you have to do is perform your search and from the result list, select the Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals box and click the Update Results button. All your results will now be from scholarly (peer reviewed) journals.
