Got an upcoming project or paper coming up? Then check out this website for help evaluating sources for research projects with a step-by-step guide. In the initial appraisal, it tells how to focus on author’s credentials, date of publication, edition, publishers, and titles of periodicals. Then it moves to analyzing the content. Does it fit the intended audience? Is it real information or propaganda? Does it make sense and cite sources? It offers tips for analyzing both print and web sources, and provides signs of bad sources. Included is an exercise in which students list bad sources and explain what makes them bad.
