Scholarly, or peer-reviewed articles, are almost always written by professors, scholars, or other experts in a particular field or discipline; are usually found in journals edited by professors, scholars, and/or field experts; include in-text citations, footnotes, end notes, or an extensive bibliography or reference list; contain a literature review or a discussion of theories; contain jargon specific to the field or disciplines; and are typically more than 5 pages in length.
