How to Identify a Scholarly Source

Sources to help you identify a scholarly article:

When beginning your search for scholarly sources, consider how you are searching. For example, using Google Scholar would be a better search engine than a general Google search. Using one of the databases provided through the library website is also a good source. Many of the journal articles provided through the library do have access to full online text.
