Video Transcript

>> CHELSEA: When you're doing your research, keep in mind that your sources need to be credible. Your Uncle Bob might be an expert on molecular genetics, but chances are he's not. I know mine isn't. Sorry, Uncle Bob, but it's the truth. So you can't rely on unverified information. Your sources need to be valid and reliable. Think encyclopedias, textbooks, trade publications, stuff like that. Websites are a little trickier. If it's the online version of a credible publication, that's fine, but if it's a user-generated source, like Wikipedia, then that's not reliable enough to serve as a source for your project.
