How to evaluate your sources

An extremely important part of the research process is evaluating your sources.  With each source, you want to answer questions such as:

  • Who is the author and what is their expertise, authority and background in the area they are writing on? 
  • Does the information look accurate? How can you tell?
  • Is it relevant to your research topic?
  • Is it current enough or is the date not important?
  • Is the information biased?  How can you tell?
