Mark Sample defines scholarship thus: "a creative or intellectual act becomes scholarship when it is public and circulates in a community of peers that evaluates and builds upon it."

By this definition, as Mark Bauerlein shows in "The Research Bust," a lot of the writing published in peer-reviewed articles is barely research: no one "builds upon it," or the vast majority of "it," through citations. If that's actually true, then we really do need to re-define what counts as "scholarship."
