In order to find and use scholarly articles in your assignments, you'll need to understand at least the basics of scholarly literature -- what it is, who the intended readers are, who writes scholarly literature, and why and how you use it when conducting academic research.
You can get started by searching Armacost Resources and limiting results to show only those items published in peer-reviewed journals. This way focus your set of search result to only those published in scholarly, peer-reviewed journals, but these journals will include editorials, book reviews, and other material that may not undergo the peer review process. You, the researcher, will need to determine whether an information source meets the rigorous criteria that distinguishes scholarly literature from non-scholarly literature. To determine whether a source is scholarly, read and consider the information provided in the links below.
