Scholarly Writing from the Online Writing Center @ Walden University
Scholarly writing is also known as academic writing. It is the genre of writing used in all academic fields. Scholarly writing is not better than journalism, fiction, or poetry; it is just a different category. Because most of us are not used to scholarly writing, it can feel unfamiliar and intimidating, but it is a skill that can be learned by immersing yourself in scholarly literature. - See more at: http://writingcenter.waldenu.edu/312.htm#sthash.69F3FHaw.dpuf
