Q. How do I find reliable websites on the pros and cons of advertising?


To find reliable websites for research, you can:

  • Use the Online Resources (these are articles from college-level journals)
  • Search http://www.ipl.org/ (The Internet Public Library)
  • Use a Google Scholar or Google Advanced Search to limit your results to just .org (non-profit), .edu (educational institutions), or .gov (government) websites/domains. This will also let you limit to a date range. 

Tips for staying away from unreliable websites:

  • Make sure the website is up to date.
  • Use websites that cite their sources.
  • Avoid citing commercial websites (.com).
  • Do not cite Wikipedia or similar user-edited sites.
