Websites

Use the following criteria to evaluate the credibility of information you find on the Web. (Ask your professor if you are allowed to cite websites in your paper before you start your research.)

    Authority: What are the author's qualifications for writing on the subject?
    Accuracy: How reliable and free from error is the information?
    Objectivity: Is the information presented with a minimum of bias?
    Currency: Is the information current, and can you tell when it was published?

Check the domain (.com, .edu, .gov, .org, etc.) Some domains are restricted to certain types of organizations while others may be bought or sold by anyone. .edu & .gov are limited to educational and government organizations. There are no limitations on .com & .org. Always be aware of who is publishing the website and where the content is coming from.
