Evaluating Web Content
Google Scholar is a great starting place for initial research. Unlike a regular Google search, Google Scholar attempts to connect you with more "academic" content then information typically found on the web.
As with any web searching important evaluation work will still need to be done on each of the resources you are looking at. Use the following criteria to evaluation the information from Google Scholar or other web searches.
Websites can be produced by individuals or organizations.
Reputable websites will have authorship information easily visible,
including both the authors' names and credentials.
To use information in your research it must be judged accurate and
verifiable before use.
Look for the publication date of the website, frequent updates, and
dates for specific articles.
Does the information provided by the website meet your research need?
A website's purpose is the reason it was created. This should be very clear.
Note that some websites might present opinions as facts but they are
actually attempting to sell a product or persuade you.
