Tips for choosing reliable websites
- Consider the source. You are looking for reliable scientific information, so the authors of the site should be clearly indicated. You should be able to determine their connection to the scientific research community, and determine what their point of view is.
- Consider the audience. Who is reading the site? Scientists? General public? Kids?
- Consider how often the site is updated. For some topics, information that hasn't been updated in 5 years may be fine. For other topics, you will need to find more up-to-date information.
- Consider other sources. Is the information compatible with information in your textbook or other sources?
- Consider why you need the information. A website that is quite fine for giving you a topic idea might not be good as a reference in your paper.
