Adrianna Papell Attalie Ivory Hallie Pump Women's Lace What's the difference between apopular article and a scholarlyPapell Lace Women's Attalie Hallie Ivory Pump Adrianna Pump Attalie Adrianna Lace Women's Ivory Hallie Papell one?  And I keep seeing the terms "scholarly" and "peer-reviewed."  Do they mean the same thing?

 

A popular article is one that is found in a magazine.  It has the following characteristics:

  • It's written by journalists or professional writers for a general audience
  • It uses language easily understood by general readers
  • If it contains research, it is typically reported second-hand.
  • It rarely gives full citations for sources
  • It tends to be shorter than journal articles.
  • It is usually glossy and pretty and is published daily, weekly, or monthly.

The instructor for my course has specified that I use peer-reviewed articles.  Does that mean a scholarly article?

Yes, but peer-reviewed articles are a special subset of scholarly articles.  Peer review is an editorial process many scholarly journals use to ensure that the articles published in journals are high-quality scholarship.  These articles (also called refereed articles) are reviewed by an editor and other specialists before being accepted for publication.

You can filter search results in the CORE Library by "peer-reviewed."   This ensures that every article in a search has gone through this special review process.

 


The instructor has not specified what kinds of information I should use.  What do I do?

Both popular and scholarly articles can be good sources for your work.  When selecting information, think about how you intend to use the information.

  • Do you want background on a topic that is new to you?  ---> Use magazines.
  • Do you want to explore popular opinion? ---> Use magazines.
  • Are you interested in finding information that is written for the patient, as opposed to the doctor? ---> Use magazines.
  • Do you need research to support a claim? ---> Use Adrianna Lace Women's Pump Ivory Hallie Attalie Papell Lace Pump Papell Attalie Women's Hallie Ivory Adrianna journals.
