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.
