Web Evaluation: authorship

What to look for:
  • Is an author listed? (either an individual or organization)
  • What are his/her credentials? Is the author an expert in this field?
  • Is there a link to information about the author or sponsor?
  • Is contact information for the author or sponsor listed anywhere?

You should be very skeptical of any information source that does not list an author (either an individual or a corporation).
