Strategies for Gathering and Evaluating Sources
| What makes the source credible or what does not make it credible? Consider the following when addressing the source:
What is the author’s affiliation to any organization related to the subject of the article? Does he or she have an ulterior motive? * What is the author’s experience with the subject, including academic or professional credentials related to the subject of the source article? Does she or he have what it takes to understand the complexities of the subject? * Does this article report on information that the author experienced personally, or is it a summary or retelling of information from other sources? How close is the author to the actual information? * Is the information current? When was the information published or last updated? Might there be resources with more current information? * In general, does the information in the source article match the information found in other sources? Or is the information different or unique? Can this information be confirmed by more sources than just this one? * Does the source make any claims without having evidence to support them?
