Evaluation of Web Sites
If you have an article published in a peer-reviewed online journal, you’re good to go. However… There are no content, nor publication standards on the web. Anyone can publish, and DOES!
Remember questions of Content, Credibility, and Timeliness:
•Does the site link to other credible sources?
•Have cited references?
•Are the author’s credentials listed?
•Mission statement/”about us” link for the organization?
•Published by reputable organization’s web site?
•Biased? One point of view?
•Poor spelling or grammar?
•Current? Check for updates or copyright date (usually at bottom of page)
