Scholarly or peer-reviewed journal articles have the following characteristics:
> Reviewed by a panel of experts before they are accepted for publication
> Written by a scholar or specialist in the field
> Contain footnotes and/or references
> Frequently contain diagrams and charts but few glossy pictures
> Report on original research or experimentation
> Published by professional associations
