What's not a good source?[edit]

Other sources may be tempting and easy to find, but should be avoided.

Poor sources include:

  • Blog posts and social media
  • Press releases and promotional material
  • Official websites
  • Self-published materials

While it can be useful to run a web search to help you find good sources (such as books or scholarly articles), most search results won't be useful in and of themselves.
