Internet Search

If you choose to use the internet for your research keep in mind these things:

  • How authoritative is the source of information?
  • How accurate is the information?
  • How reliable is the information?
  • How current is the information?
  • How relevant is the information to my topic?

Don't forget that you also have to cite the source. Can you identify at least an author, title and date?

Journals vs. Magazines

Journals - Academic / Scholarly publications of articles written by experts in the particular field of study. These articles are written for others within that particular discipline or profession using vocabulary and terminology common to them. Example: Journal of American Medical Association.

      (Within journals is the more rigorous scholarly peer-reviewed or refereed articles that have to pass review by a board of experts in the field before publication.)

Magazines - General publications of articles written for people to get an overview of a topic, meant for general population comprehension. Magazine articles may be written by experts but are meant to be relatable to a larger audience than journals. Example: Newsweek.
