Consider whether or not the author cites other reputable experts in the field or other studies that have been done, and if there is a bibliography or citations. Check if the author indicates how he or she gathered information, or whether the results of research have been replicated in other studies. A source that does not reference other importance works or scholars may contain biased or erroneous information, and may represent one person's point of view.
