Accuracy: The reliability, truthfulness, and correctness of the content

  • Can you verify the information in reliable sources?
  • Can you verify the information from your personal knowledge?
  • Where does the information come from?
  • Is the information supported by evidence? Do linked sources actually support statements made, or does the text misrepresent the original sources?
  • Has the information been reviewed or refereed?
  • Are there obvious errors (spelling, grammar, etc.)?
