Scholarly sources are written by scholars and are published in peer-reviewed academic journals.
Articles published in popular magazine and newspapers (even if the writer is a scholar) are not considered scholarly sources.
Government reports and reports by non-profit organizations are not scholarly sources, but they might still be acceptable to use.
