Scholarly (Peer Reviewed Journals)vs Non-Scholarly periodicals

Scholarly Periodicals publish articles that are useful for serious scholastic research; often, instructors will insist that students use only scholastic periodicals for their research work. 


Scholarly periodicals are also referred to as Academic Journals, Peer Reviewed  or Refereed Journals.  "Refereed" or "Peer Reviewed"  mean that not only is the journal edited, but that every article included in the journal is reviewed by authorities in the subject field of the journal, to decide whether or not the article should be published.
