Scholarly Information

Journal articles & databases - Engineering - LibGuides at Southern Cross  University

Scholarly information is written by an expert in the field, for people who are also experts in that field, and is an authoritative source of information. Scholarly articles are generally published in journals, and often go through a formal peer review process

What is an example of scholarly information?
These include books, refereed journals, maps, monographs, images, DVDs and videos, audio recordings and other physical materials.
Finding Scholarly Sources
  1. Look for publications from a professional organization, e.g SACE, Association of American Educators, National Association for Gifted Children, etc.
  2. Use databases such as JSTOR that contain only scholarly sources.
  3. Use databases such as Academic Search Complete or other EBSCO databases that allow you to choose "peer-reviewed journals".
In the next three pages we'll be using uKwazi, Education Databases and Education Journals to find scholarly information, which you can use to complete your class assignments.
