What's the big deal with scholarly articles?

What is NOT considered a scholarly article?

The following are not considered scholarly articles:

  • Articles that are 1-2 pages. It is highly recommended that you use articles that are at least 3 pages.
  • Letters/correspondence to the editor, book reviews, and commentary.
    • These are generally 1-2 pages, but may be longer.
    • For letters to the editor and commentary, the author is giving personal opinion which may or may not be supported by evidence.

Unsure of whether an article is acceptable? Check with your professor!
