Scholarly Articles, Reports & Working Papers

This guide showcases recommended resources for research, teaching and learning in International Studies.

What are Scholarly Journal Articles?

  • Written by expert scholars on a specific aspect of their field of study
  • Contain original research and analysis which contributes to knowledge in the field
  • Authors rely on evidence and the findings of other scholars to create the arguments and conclusions in their articles; many reference are cited by the author(s)
  • Published in scholarly journals produced by university presses and academic publishers
  • Most articles undergo a peer-review process, where scholars assess the value, credibility and quality of the author's work to determine if it meets established standards for publication

What are Working Papers? 

  • Working papers allow scholars and analysts to share and discuss new ideas and arguments with their peers
  • Scholars may produce a working paper as a precursor to publishing a scholarly journal article 
  • Do not undergo the traditional publication process of a scholarly journal.
