Many professors require that students use scholarly (also called peer reviewed or academic) sources in their assignments. For key characteristics to help you identify scholarly publications, see the Library's Scholarly Journals vs Popular Magazines vs Trade Publications guide or the Scholarly Journals online tutorial.

Staff at the Library's Research Help desk can also help you to identify and locate scholarly sources for your research.
