INTR 1020: Introduction to Science Professions (UCBA)

Evaluating Sources

There isn't a checklist that determines if information is credible and trustworthy. Start with asking questions to determine how well a source fits your needs. Keep in mind that the information needs to be situated in the context of your research topic/question. 

  • How will you use this source in your research assignment?
  • What value does this source add to your research assignment?
  • Does the information relate to your research topic and/or answer some aspect of your research question?
