Evaluating information from scholarly journals

What are scholarly journals and what should we consider in evaluating the information they produce?

Scholarly journals have articles that are typically written by scholars: they have doctorates and are experts in their field. Scholarly journal articles are therefore likely to be of good, quality research. They can also be a great source for more recent information, because they can take a short amount of time to be published.
