Nutrition And Health Research Guide: Evaluating Sources

Evaluate your Sources

Before you use a website -- or any source -- for an assignment, consider:

  • Purpose: Why was it created?
  • Authority: Who created this material? What are the author’s credentials?
  • Scope/Coverage: What does it include and leave out?
  • Accuracy: Is the information provided correct?
  • Currency: When was it created or last updated?
  • Objectivity: What is the author’s or sponsor’s point of view?

There are many variations on this technique -- here are links to a few of them.
