Identifying Scholarly Works
Scholarly books and journals can be identified by looking for various distinguishing characteristics.
The author of a scholarly work is usually a professor or a noted expert in a field. Popular works may be written by anyone.
Scholarly works contain only limited advertising.
Scholarly works are written on a more advanced level and use the jargon of the specific profession. Popular works are written for a more general audience.
Popular works rarely contain scholarly citations or footnotes. Scholarly works nearly always will.
Scholarly works undergo a stringent process known as peer review. Popular works do not.
Scholarly works include books issued by a scholarly or university press and journals such as the American Historical Review or the Journal of American History.
Popular works include books issued by popular presses intended for a wide audience and magazines such as Time and Newsweek.
When in doubt you can always ask a librarian.
