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.

For specific methods to help you evaluate resources for their credibility, please see our guide: Evaluating Resources
