Holly Tucker,
Hello classmates and Dr. S,
            When determining whether you have found a good source it is important to consider if it is scholarly or credible. Ensuring that the source is reliable is important as well. “Reliable sources in academic research are usually primary sources” (Lee 2013).  This can be found in peer reviewed articles. The benefits of using peer reviewed journal articles over a website is evidenced in the amount of time that is invested by peers and being known for the most references or citations. According to a link in Purdue owl “Responsible, credible authors will cite their sources so that you can check the accuracy of and support for what they’ve written. (This is also a good way to find more sources for your own research.).”  One of the drawbacks to using peer reviewed articles would be having to pay for a subscription to view the full spectrum of information available. 
            While it can be time consuming or come at a price in some instances to find credible information, it is especially important for students to do so rather than relay on all to easily convenient websites that we have readily available at our fingertips such as Wikipedia. Reason being most of these sites are not going to be accurately informing. Wikipedia is not a credible or protected site and can be edited by anyone. While I know not to trust everything I read or hear, I must say that being new to all of this myself, this was an eye-opening experience for me while doing my research on this topic. I found myself looking through different sites and came across Wikipedia many times. It shows how easily we can be misinformed or given dated information that may have changed substantially over the years. I look forward to gaining more insight on this topic and getting feedback from others on their personal experiences.
