What are scholarly or academic sources?
When an assignment calls for scholarly sources, typically that means academic books and articles from scholarly journals.
Quick rule of thumb of telling whether a source is scholarly is to look for a works cited list or bibliography in which the author refers to the work of other researchers.
What is Peer-Reviewed?
Some scholarly articles are called peer-reviewed as they are critically evaluated for originality, quality of research, and clarity of presentation by the author's peers (experts who do research in the same field).
