Is it Scholarly?
Scholarly articles have unique characteristics that distinguish them from popular magazine articles. Some of these characteristics include:
Length - scholarly articles are longer, usually over 10 pages. This is because they discuss previous research, present new research or make new arguments, and draw conclusions.
Authors - scholarly articles are often written by professors or professionals in a field.
Language - scholarly articles use technical language, or jargon, relevant to the field.
References - readers will always find a thorough bibiliography at the end of a scholarly article.
