Often referred to as scholarly sources, these books and articles are written by scholars for scholars and are generally journal articles that are more complex and require closer and deeper reading than an encyclopedia or other reference source. You will want to incorporate the views of these experts in your written work to support your claims. Try the "They Say, I Say" method used by many colleges and universities to teach academic writing. Journals may be published online only or they may be available in print and online. Here at Kent, you will find our scholarly journals online.
