Scholarly, Academic, or Peer-Reviewed journals are important sources of quality information within a given field. Each field of study or profession has its own set of academic journals. It is in these journals that scholars and experts share research findings with each other. The articles are written by scholars, experts, researchers, or academics and the author(s) is(are) always stated. The authors are not employed by the journal, they usually work at a college or university, research lab, or in the field. 
Peer-reviewed articles are judged by a panel of experts before they are published. These are quality sources that usually contain bibliographic references and original research.
