Evaluating Internet Sources



This guide will assist you to evaluate information you get from the web.


The Internet is a wonderful avenue to explore for information. However, since anyone can publish on the Internet you want to ensure that the information you are getting is accurate and reliable. Unlike most print sources such as books and journals where a lot of filtering takes place -- peer review or editing, for example, the information you're getting from a majority of Internet resources is unfiltered. This guide provides a starting point for evaluating World Wide Web sites and other Internet information. Additional questions or comments may be sent to Kwasi Sarkodie-Mensah:
