Credible sources include academic journals, trade journals, popular magazines, newspapers, government websites, books, and other types of information sources. Please note that a credible source is not necessarily a scholarly, academic source.
Determining credibility for a specific resource requires critical thinking and reading skills to evaluate the resource.
