“I’m gonna fail this Algebra test.”

Registering for an Algebra class soon and afraid of not passing?

You’re not the only one who feels this way. There are plenty of students who think they’re in a whirlwind of numbers and letters as they try to come out of their math class alive.

But have you ever wondered how some of your classmates who seemed to struggle in math ended up passing with As and high Bs?

“How’d they do that?!” you probably asked to yourself, “… we were just talking about how we knew we would both fail this class…” 🤔

Something was going on behind the scenes that may have been a bit more intense than you thought.

A study routine, maybe?

How To Vet Your Academic Sources

Vetting your academic sources is essential. Your academic research depends on you picking sound articles and books to critique and draw upon. If you choose the wrong sources, you run the risk of your entire article being distrusted and thrown out. Using structurally sound articles is even more critical when you are writing for an audience that’s wider than your classroom like at a conference or in a small journal. You want to make sure that your research reflects the time and energy you spent writing your paper.

Today we are going to look at seven things you can look at when you are vetting your academic sources.

As a note: Use your best judgment. Whenever I looked for sources in college and graduate school, I never had to look super hard. Some of these you should look at by default, but you may not have to go so deep. If something doesn’t seem quite right, go through more of these steps until you are satisfied that you are using a good source.

How To Vet Your Academic Sources | How reputable are the sources you use for your academic research papers? If you are struggling to answer that question this post will help you vet the sources you are using so you use the best ones every time.
