Finding Journal Articles: Citing Sources

Vetting Your Sources

Searching the internet is quick and easy, and can be a great source for relevant, quality information. Caveat emptor: evaluate the resources you use.

Here are some guidelines to assess Internet resources, such as Web pages and blogs:

  • Currency - Is the information current? Is it updated regularly?
  • Reliability - Is the source reputable? Is it accurate?
  • Authority - Who created the information? Why?
  • Purpose/Point of View - Is there a balance of perspectives? Is the information biased?

Please see this additional information about the CRAP test.
