2. Look for characteristics that indicate that a source is an academic one:

  • includes a references list or works cited
  • the author's credentials - a PhD or advanced degree - is included.
  • uses specialized terminology
  • includes research methodology and results

3. Google the title of the publication to get a description. Look for peer-reviewed or refereed in the description.

Here's an example:
