Credibility is important! – If your research is flawed, so is your argument. – If you use credible sources, you can believe them, and your readers can believe you. Credibility

11  Most books you find in library nonfiction are credible.  Most large newspapers are credible. ◦ New York Times ◦ Charlotte Observer ◦ Washington Post  Scholarly journals are usually credible. ◦ JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association)  Most government publications are credible.  Reputable organizations are usually credible. ◦ American Cancer Society ◦ World Health Organization ◦ American Red Cross  Most information from colleges is credible. ◦.edu websites How do I know if my sources are credible?

12 You can automatically rule out: – Wikipedia* – Myspace – Facebook – Blogs—unless it is affiliated with a professional group or organization – Personal sites *Scroll down to the bottom and check out the sources use in the entry. How do I know if my sources are credible?

13 The Internet offers the BEST information on MANY topics. The Internet offers the WORST information on MOST topics. You can use Internet resources for research papers, but you have to be careful. Using the Internet for Research

14 Ways to tell a credible internet source: – Looks professional The website doesn’t look like it was made by a 4-year-old with a crayon All or most links are working – Information offered is easy to verify The website offers links to where they found their information The sources of their information is also credible Credible Internet Sources

15 – It is easy to contact the owners of the website for more information or to ask questions – The site is up to date Information from 1991 is not listed as “recent” – There are no errors The site uses proper spelling and grammar – The website is appropriate There is no inappropriate language, graphics, or photos Credible Internet Sources

16 These guidelines are not 100% When in doubt, ask for help from a teacher or librarian If you’re still not sure, DON’T use it Be careful sites – sites are trying to sell something, which means they are all biased in some way – Sites with lots of advertisements are usually less credible Credible Internet Sources

17 Citing Sources With MLA It’s not as hard as it used to be.

18  If you use ANY information from a source in your paper, you must CITE it. ◦ Works Cited Page ◦ In-Text Citations  If you didn’t say it yourself and you don’t cite it, it is plagiarism.  Plagiarism can result in: ◦ A zero for the assignment ◦ A requirement to redo the entire assignment ◦ In college, plagiarism may fail you for an entire course ◦ In college, plagiarism may result in expulsion, with no tuition refund Citing Works in Research Papers

19  Is much easier to spot than it used to be  Doesn’t take very long for a teacher to check ◦ A teacher can type 10 words of your paper into a search engine, and within seconds, compare it to tens of thousands of other papers that have already been written  In high school, many teachers believe that you are guilty until proven innocent of plagiarism  Is easy to avoid ◦ Citation makers ◦ MLA style sheets Plagiarism

20 Citation makers will write your works cited page for you if you have the right information on your sources Books, articles, and websites are all cited differently The more information you have, the better When you find a source that you think you can use, you need to make sure you have several things How to Cite Sources

21  Your checklist: ◦ Author ◦ Title ◦ Publication company ◦ Publication location ◦ Publication date ◦ Page numbers ◦ Date accessed online ◦ Editor ◦ ENTIRE web address  You might not always be able to find all of this information, but get as much as you can. Making Citations
