A scholarly, or academic, article is an article that appears in a scholarly journal. They are written by experts, for experts, and focus on narrow topics. Historians have different scholarly journals than chemists.
Scholarly journals also have letters, editorials, news, and other items which are not scholarly articles. You'll need to look at the content to be sure you have an article.
