Purdue Online Writing Lab - APA Guidelines
Websites: Evaluating Internet Information / Sites
1. Look at the ending of the url: .edu, .gov, .org, .mil - does it give you any indication of the credibility of the website?
2. Authority: Is there an author? Any credentials listed? Is there an "About Us?"
3. Current: Has the website been updated? Look for the last updated date.
4. What research information am I looking for? Do you want facts, opinions, peer reviews, historical information or news reports? Does this help support my paper?
