Political Science: Websites

Evaluating Websites

Researchers generally use websites in two ways:

  1. Research artifact -- Something you're writing about or using as an example. Any website can be used.
  2. Research source -- Primary or secondary sources that support or anchor your claims. Use only trustworthy, authoritative sites. 

Your argument is only as credible as your sources.
