Purpose and Directions
Using the library databases exclusively, find three texts related to your research topic. At least one needs to be scholarly. Complete the four sections below for each source.
For a list of evaluation criteria to help you determine if the source is scholarly or not, see PPCC Library’s section on Scholarly vs. Popular literature: https://libguides.ppcc.edu/researchtools/scholarly.
Section 1: Identification and Summary
Start by citing the source in MLA format (as if it is a part of a Works Cited page). Write a paragraph of academic summary for the source, including main idea, key points, most important details, purpose, and conclusion. Use MLA in-text citations.
Section 2: Audience
Write a paragraph about the target or original audience for this text. What information in the text helps you identify the audience? Consider: Language, format, publishing information, ideas, and anything else that might help you be most specific.
Section 3: Credibility and Accuracy
In a paragraph, identify the author(s). List the author’s credentials (profession and any other important information and discuss whether or not you find the author to be credible. Look for credentials or other information with the source, then do a quick Internet search to learn more. Explain where you found your information. Can you find if this person is affiliated with any professional organizations, universities, think tanks, etc…? For multi-authored work, focus on one or two of the writers listed.
In a separate paragraph, discuss the accuracy of the information. Is the information and research in the source complete? How current? If the source is scholarly, how many sources are listed on the references page or Works Cited page? How many pages long is the article? If the source is not scholarly, how does the writer incorporate information? Does the information come from credible sources? How do you know? Are you able to independently verify some of the information?
Section 4: Source Potential and Usability
Would you include this source as part of your research project? Why or why not? Specify how you could use it. For example, does the authority of the author help establish your credibility? Does it provide good oppositional viewpoints? Are there statistics or study findings that would be useful to include in a paper on this topic? Does it explain the history of the issue? Then, pull out a quote or section you might use in your essay and paraphrase or use an embedded quotation which uses clear context to set up the information for your reader. Use in-text citations.
