RE: How to Critically Analyse an Online Health Resource for Validity and Authority

in #steemstem2 years ago

I frustrate my daughter because I 'm so careful about sources. I don't think you can be too careful. I like peer-reviewed studies. I look for articles that have been published from around the world. Get a better picture that way. I check the institutional affiliation of the authors. I check the citations to make sure those sources are legitimate. I"m not only careful with health information...I'm skeptical period. And then, when I've done all that, I realize I can still make a mistake, but at least I did my best.
Good article because it encourages us to be skeptics. Necessary skill to survive:)
