Using Authoritative Sources

Authoritative Sources

  • Scholarly, peer-reviewed articles are considered authoritative.
  • Articles from major news outlets are considered authoritative.
  • But what about other kinds of information?
  • You need to evaluate whether the information you find is coming from an authoritative source.
    • What is the expertise of the source?
      • Qualifications, affiliations, etc…
    • How accurate is the information?
      • Based on research, evidence, first-hand experience? 
      • Are sources of ideas and facts properly cited? Are they reliable?
    • Why was the information produced?
      • To entertain? To sell something? To advance a specific agenda?
    • How are you using the information?
