Evaluating Sources

How do you know if a source is credible and legitimate? Ask the following questions:

1. Who is the author? Do they have an educational background or expertise related to the topic of the article, website, blog entry, book chapter about which they are writing?

2. Where is the source published? Is the information self-published or did it appear in a well-respected newspaper or journal? If you're not sure, Google the publication name to find out about it.

3. What's the date of the source? An article published in the 1990s may not include the most up-to-date information. But if you are writing about a change over time, a source from the 1990s may be appropriate for your research project.
