Are government sources considered to be scholarly?

The government produces a large amount of publications including congressional, agency and administrative reports from hundreds of departments. Most of these publications are considered to be authoritative and credible. However, they may not generally be considered scholarly or peer-reviewed. See our page, Academic, Popular and Trade Publications, for characteristics of academic/scholarly publications.
