english - third revision

posted by .

When evaluating online sources, one of the points to remember is that all information listed on the internet is not reliable. In essence, when reading this blog titled "The Nation," I cannot determine that the information is reliable because the source, author and credentials were missing. Although the "Wikipedia" article shows a collection of data from different sources, it can be considered as a reliable source that fit the guideline because citing data from different sources does not make it unreliable.

The capital punishment article is somewhat reliable because the information is from a college website. Therefore, I would not hesitate to use the information provided.

Finally, the university library is the most credible source to use for academic research because it provides accurate and balanced information. Also, the article will always have the author’s name; the source and most likely will be written by a scholar or a university teacher.
