Qualify your sources
It is likely that you came here via a search engine. Search engines can be useful sources of information, but you need to qualify the information they return, especially if you are going to use them for academic study. The better sites generally substantiate what they say by including a bibliography and/or the citation of peer reviewed or scholarly published sources. This site uses citations, but as they can be off-putting for the casual visitor, they will be found much more frequently in the more detailed pages.
