Some guidelines for assessing the credibility of internet sites


  • Is the site clearly identified?

  • Is it located at and administered by a governmental agency, university, or other scholarly institution?

  • Is the author of the web page or document identified? Are there details of the author’s qualifications and affiliations?

  • Is the posting process explained? Have items on this site been peer-reviewed?

  • Is there a date for when the information was created or last updated?

  • Is the item more opinion than information?

  • Is the item posted for potentially political, commercial or other reasons which would damage its objectivity?
