When you search the Internet, it is easy to find thousands, if not millions, of websites geared to your topic.
The challenge is to find RELEVANT, CREDIBLE websites. Consider the following:
When searching Google, you can limit your online search to credible sources by using this formula:
Your topic, "site", followed by a colon (:), followed by .edu .gov or .org
You can also try putting your topic in quotes.
criminology theories site:.org
This searching technique will limit your results to college and university websites or government publications, which are authoritative, credible sources.
You can also use Google without limiting your results to .edu .gov or .org sites, but choose your sources carefully!
You can also limit your search to a specific publication.
