Evaluating information

It is often difficult to evaluate the quality of information retrieved from the Internet. Although there is a lot of information; not all of it is useful, accurate, up-to-date, unbiased, and/or appropriate for your research. The following are some extra indicators for you to consider:

  • Who is responsible for the creation and maintenance of the website?
  • Are other information and links provided?
  • Is the site subject to influences over content e.g. a commercial organisation, a political organisation?
  • Are the pages current and updated regularly?
  • Is the site user-friendly? Is there an index or site map or other navigation links to the site information?
  • Is the layout of the site professional or amateurish?

You need to cite information from the Internet as you would any other information.
