What is an academic/scholarly resource?

Academic or scholarly resources are materials written by scholars or professionals in a particular field of study. These resources are often peer-reviewed, a system of internal editing that ensures accuracy and credibility of the content presented. Scholarly resources usually follow a specified format including an abstract, introduction and/or literature review, methods, results, discussion, and references/bibliography.
