Finding the right publication is already a challenge, how do you know if the information found is also reliable? Sources offered by the Study Centers have been reviewed in advance and are reliable.
With information found on the internet, always remain critical and evaluate your source. For example, ask yourself:
► Who is the creator of the site?
► When was the site last updated?
► Is advertising the main purpose of the site?
► Can you contact the creator of the site, for example by e-mail?
► Is there additional information, for example a reference list or links - and are these links working?
► Can the original source be retrieved?
