Scholarly journals are also known as academic journals. They focus on a particular field and contain articles written experts in that field. Scholarly or academic publications publish research and updates of importance specific to that subject. For example, the publication Pediatric Nursing contains research studies written by pediatric nurses on topics related to their practice. 

A related publication is a scholarly "peer-reviewed" journal. Peer-reviewed journal articles have gone through an extra level of oversight by fellow experts in the field to review accuracy and the use of proper research methods.
