Welcome to the Library

Understanding Scholarly Sources

  1. How can you tell this is a scholarly source? How is it different from a movie review or popular magazine article?
  2. 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?
  3. What kind of evidence is used in the article to support the author's claims?
  4. Would this article be useful to someone writing a research paper on the 2019 film The Color Out of Space? Why or why not?
