How do you know if its an article?

How do you know if its an article?

If you’ve examined your article and still aren’t sure what type you’ve got, Google the periodical title. On the periodical’s website, read about its purpose, audience and topics (look for an “about” or “scope” link). Remember that peer-reviewed journals will always state that they are peer-reviewed.

How do you tell if it’s a scholarly article?

The best way to tell if a book is a scholarly source is to look at the publisher. If it was published by a university, it went through the same peer-review process as an article. There could be other book publishers that have peer-review so if you are unsure it is best to Google the publisher’s name.

How do you know if an article is online only?

How do you know if a resource has been published?Books: honestly, look for a publisher’s name. Even e-books will have this information (yes, even on Google Books). Journal articles: If you can find the volume, issue and page numbers for a journal article, it’s been published. Websites: are not published.
