Quick & Easy: How to Evaluate a Source

"When we describe a source as credible, we're basically saying that the information is high-quality and trustworthy. Essentially, that we can believe what the source is telling us."

Credible sources are:

  1. Authoritative: the author of the source has a high level of expertise on the topic. The author's credentials are presented within the source or are easy to find elsewhere.
  2. Fair: opinions are supported by logical arguments and facts. Opinions are not presented as facts. Counterarguments are acknowledged in a civil way and addressed.
  3. Up-to-date: the research and statistics included in the source are current enough for the research topic.
