Why Should we Evaluate Web Sources?

Unlike news and scholarly publications, information on the internet is not regulated or vetted for accuracy or quality. Despite this fact, there are numerous useful and reliable sources online. Therefore, in order to utilize these, it is especially important for researchers to evaluate a web source before using it to support their ideas or inform their opinions. When using web sources, be sure to examine the:

  • Time of publication
  • Connection to your topic/thesis
  • Author and/or publisher of the source
  • Accuracy of information
  • Purpose of its publishing

Although not every single criteria may be applicable to every source, you should evaluate the degree to which the source is reliable or not
