This article analyzes the views of several authors concerning the concept of scholarship. In the book Scholarship Reconsidered, Ernest Boyer argued that scholarship requires a broad intellectual foundation and that faculty talent should be celebrated rather than restrict. While Carole Barbato argued that the scholarship of integration can be equally innovative, as it suggests new ways to approach, interpret, integrate and challenge older findings and assumptions. And Rozell Duncan and Mary Anne Higgins summarized two case studies whereby communication faculty engaged in the scholarship of application with a government agency and area farmers.
