It depends on the source's situation. Peer-reviewed sources are considered scholarly, but not all scholarly sources are considered peer-reviewed.
Scholarly Sources - Publications centered on sharing original research and its results within a subject discipline. These sources do not go through an extensive review process as peer-reviewed sources do, sometimes only getting approval for publication by an editorial board.
Peer-Reviewed Sources - They are the same type of publication as Scholarly Sources; however, they go through an extensive review process before they are published.
