Popular vs. Scholarly

Your professor tells you that you cannot use the Internet to find sources for your paper. Rather, you must to use "Scholarly Journals" and other academic resources.  What does that mean?

      

    Guide Index

    Use this guide to learn the difference between those items that are considered scholarly or academic and those items that are considered popular.  This is not a negative judgment.  At times, you may even use "popular" materials in your research and writing.  However, it is important that you know the difference and understand the types of materials you are using to support the assertions in your work.

    Remember, not all information is created equal.  It is up to you to use your best judgment to determine the worth, validity, and merit of a work.
