Newcomers: Checking sources for academic writing

Newcomers: Checking sources for academic writing Online

Academic sources are the most trustworthy and best to use in your research. But you still need to be selective when selecting sources in order to make the best possible points. Like with social media and news media, you should check the content for accuracy, and also evaluate its relevance to your own arguments and research. Evaluating is an important academic skill that involves critical thinking when you are doing your research and finding information. The quality of your research is directly related to the quality of the sources you use, so knowing how to fact check and evaluate is important to your success in your academic careers. This session covers how to avoid 'fake' academic journals and investigate sources using the SIFT method.
