Scholarly sources are publications, such as journals and monographs (scholarly books), that are more technical and written for an expert audience. The writers have advanced degrees and are experts in their field. Their papers might describe their studies and findings, review the state of knowledge in a specific area, or present theories. An editor oversees the publication process and journal editors often use peer review to ensure they are publishing the most scientifically sound papers.
