Working with Scholarly Sources
- What is the article about? What questions does it address?
- How can you tell this is a "scholarly" source? List as many scholarly qualities or characteristics as you can.
- Do some research on the Journal of Youth Studies. Who publishes it? What topics does the journal cover? Does it seem like a credible source?
- What do you notice about the organizational structure of the article? Why is it organized this way?
Scholarly Article Resources
- Choose a subculture of interest.
- Brainstorm 2-4 research questions related to that subculture (preferably open-ended questions).
- Choose an Any Topic database and a subject-specific database.
- In each database, find 1 scholarly article that relates in some way to your research questions (2 articles total). Add the citation information for the articles to the class workspace.
