Day 25: Source Reliability

Today You Will Learn How to:
  • Locate information about a source that helps determine its credibility and reliability (e.g. publisher, date, author, kind of journal) 
  • Categorize sources along a spectrum of credibility (not credible, credible/not academic, scholarly/academic/peer-reviewed) 
  • Concisely explain source reliability in a few written sentences
