Source Evaluation Checklist
When it comes to research, there's quality information, there's junk, and there's everything in between. How do you tell what's reliable and what's not? There is a lot more to picking a good source for your paper/presentation/project than just finding something that fits your topic. You need someone who knows what they're talking about. This brief checklist can help you identify if the source is reliable. None of these alone can determine the quality, but the more boxes you can check 'yes', the more likely it is that you are looking at a quality source.
