For most purposes, scholarly and peer-reviewed mean the same thing,
- Scholarly journals are written by experts, for experts. They are academic in nature and generally report on original research, research methodology and theory. Articles are typically lengthy and provide in-depth analysis of the subject; a bibliography is always included.
- Peer reviewed articles have been reviewed by a panel of subject experts who examine it for accuracy, clarity, relevance and sound research design.
- While not all scholarly journals go through the peer review process, it is usually safe to assume that a peer reviewed journal is also scholarly.
- You might also find these journals referred to as academic or refereed.
