CMJ 103: Public Speaking & Information Literacy Guide
Instructors often want you to use articles that are high quality, and that include citations to the works the authors used. These articles are often called scholarly, academic, refereed, or peer-reviewed. Use this table to help determine what type of article you have found. It can sometimes be difficult to determine whether a publication is scholarly or popular, so Ask A Librarian when you need help.
Note: these are typical attributes of scholarly and popular articles, but there are exceptions (for example, government-run news sources are for popular consumption, but are not-for-profit).
