minority recruitment site:edu

How do I know if a web site is credible enough to use in my paper?

  • Who is supplying the information?
  • Is it an educational institution (.edu extension)? A government agency (.gov)? A commercial supplier (.com)? A non-profit organization (.org)?
  • Is the supplier a reputable organization? (look for an “About Us” link on the homepage)
  • Is there an author or contact person named? What are the author's credentials?
  • Has this site been reviewed by experts or professional organizations?
