The readings for the week identified five questions for evaluating the credibility of online sources(quoted below):
1.What is the purpose and affiliation of the organization or author related to the article?
2.what are the author's credentials?
3.Is the information current? When was the information last updated?
4.Does the information cross-reference well with other sources?
5.Does the source cantain bias without evidence to back up the claims?
How might researcher go about seeking answers to the above questions?

    Except for 4, most of the answers can be found in the content of the source. For 4, you need to find other sources on the same topic.

    As an example, try psychological articles on my web site, http://www.members.cox.net/dagershaw/index.html.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
