Scholarly Reading Guide

The English Language Center (ELC)’s Scholarly Reading Guide resource series was developed as a way to provide English as an Additional Language (EAL) learners at Vanderbilt University the opportunity to better read and comprehend scholarly texts.

Our Scholarly Reading Guide provides learners with strategies for:

  • reading efficiently
  • reading scholarly texts critically
  • comprehending academic jargon
  • reading specific sections of journal articles


The ELC’s Scholarly Reading Guide resource series is available for download as individual documents:
