Searching for Expertise on the Internet

When searching for information on the internet you MUST evaluate the source to determine if it is of academic quality. It should be recent (no older than 2 years) and written by an expert author or organization. The purpose of the information should be clear (is it an ad or a report?) and the bias should be evident (is it trying to be neutral, or is it clearly taking a position?)

For a framework on assessing content quality, see Choosing the best sources.
