Understanding Scholarly Sources
- How can you tell this is a scholarly source? How is it different from a movie review or popular magazine article?
- Who wrote the article and where was it published? What can you find out about the author (see bio at the end) and the publication source?
- What kind of evidence is used in the article to support the author's claims?
- Would this article be useful to someone writing a research paper on the 2019 film The Color Out of Space? Why or why not?
