Overview: Evaluating information & data

This guide - with videos, exercises and handouts - is designed to help you to evaluate the information and data you found for your research.

You will learn how to find the best resources from your results list, and which publications are most useful to read first and which publications could you leave unread for the time being or maybe even discard?

It will also teach you how you can verify author's credentials, even when it's concerning non-academic material?

And last but not least: you will learn how to assess quantitative information like a number, a table, or a whole dataset. ‚Äč
