INTAG 100: Introduction to International Agriculture

Noel Habashy

Introduction - Credible Sources

You need to find credible information for your assignment.  

What is credible information? In a nutshell it’s information that

  • can be substantiated by other sources,
  • is written by an expert on the subject,
  • and is from a respected source or publisher.

Why should we make sure we use credible sources? Because it gives our own projects credibility!

To make this a bit easier for you, I created a tutorial with three basic steps for your process:

  1. getting an overview;
  2. finding articles and books; and
  3. finding reports and statistics from international organizations.
  4. For each of these we'll also cover learning how to cite the information you use!
