Step 6: Evaluating Sources
How do I know if my source is scholarly?
If you're using Academic Search Complete, select the Scholarly Peer-Reviewed Journals button to limit results to just scholarly articles. The only results you will get that are not scholarly are things marked as a book review or letter to the editor. Those should be clearly marked in the title so you can weed them out.
Scholarly articles always list their references (usually at the end of the article or the bottom of each page).
Scholarly articles always list their authors and what university or organization they work for.
Scholarly articles have volume and issue numbers (but be careful, as magazines do too).
Recent scholarly articles have what's called a DOI number. This is a unique identifier for each journal article.
