Evaluating the sources you find on a topic is an important part of your research activity. Not all information you find is valid, useful, or accurate. Some questions you need to ask while searching for and reading a source are:

  • Is the information relevant and valid for my research?
  • Is my topic covered in enough depth that the source will be helpful?
  • Is the content of the source fact, opinion, or propaganda?
  • How current is the information provided?
