Evaluating websites

Information from web sites can be very easy to find. Due to the nature of the web, it is very important to evaluate anything that you find before including it in an assignment or essay.

Anyone can author or publish material on a web site. No quality control process is required.

This doesn't mean that you shouldn't use information from web sites just that you need to apply an evaluation criteria to understand 

 Authority - What type of site is it? Who authored the content? What was is the intended audience?

 Accuracy - What evidence is presented? Does the site reference other sources?

 Currency - When was the last time the site was updated? Does the information presented have a "published" date?

Relevant websites

See below a list of some relevant websites. Please ensure you evaluate anything that you find before including it in your assessments.

Grey literature

Grey literature is materials and research produced by organizations outside of the traditional commercial or academic publishing and distribution channels. Grey literature includes: 

  • Theses
  • Government Reports
  • Research Reports & Policy
  • Conference Papers/Conference Proceedings
  • Statistics
  • Clinical evaluations
  • Images, historic newspapers, maps, music, archives

This list goes on and on. It can be an important resource depending on your topic. It will provide a more comprehensive picture of your research area and help reduce bias. But remember it is produced from a variety of sources and is usually not indexed or organised, often making it difficult to locate.
