Choosing Reliable Sources For Research
Transcript of Choosing Reliable Sources For Research
Reliable Sources Cite Their Sources
When deciding if a website is reliable for your own research, check the page to see if they tell you where their information came from.
It should name an author, or an organization responsible for the information provided
Recent Articles Are Better!
When deciding which web pages, articles, or any other type of source to use, look for the ones written or updated within the past 3-5 years.
Sometimes although a source is legitimate, the information may be outdated
Check the Dots!
.gov's and .edu's are almost always reliable sources.
.org's can go either way, so investigate the website before deciding to use it
.com's can be reliable but be skeptical!
Use Common Sense!
ALWAYS ask yourself "Does this make sense?"
Use logic to toss out unreliable sources right away,
without having to investigate them.
(There is no such thing as the Pacific
Northwest Tree Octopus!)
Good sources cite sources!
