GASP 156E (DePrano): Scholarly Books

Italian Renaissance Art 156

Scholarly Books

Scholarly books (or monographs) are peer reviewed (or referred).  They have been evaluated by one or more specialists before publication.  These titles are often published by university presses (University of North Carolina Press), scholarly associations (Royal Society of Chemistry), but include other reputable presses/publishers/imprints (Wiley-Blackwell, Routledge).  Like scholarly articles, scholarly books will include citations and be written by experts in the field of study.
