Scholarly journals: 

  • Have articles which are written by and for faculty, researchers or scholars
  • Use scholarly or technical language
  • Have articles which tend to be long and detailed, about research in a particular academic discipline
  • Include full citations for sources 
  • Are often refereed or peer-reviewed
  • Include information about the authors 

Scholarly journals are essentially a place for researchers to publish studies and original works in a dedicated field. Not all scholarly journals make the peer-review process a condition for publication.

Scholarly journals that do not have a peer-review process are less common, but they do exist.
