Research and authority

Option #1: Why Does Credible Authority Matter in the Research Process?

Working from the two information sources on your research question that you formulated in our discussion this week, continue your research with two more additional references that you believe have scholarly credibility. Drawing on the skills you have cultivated from our discussion board and from the interactive lecture, especially the section on how to evaluate authority and why it is important, address the following:

  1. Cite the source in correct APA format and summarize the main ideas or claims of each reference.
  2. Apply the criteria for evaluating credibility / authority (author, accuracy, currency, relevance, audience, and purpose) discussed in this module to your additional examples.
  3. More specifically determining the viability and credibility of each example, look closely at the markers we have studied this week. What is the expertise of each author? What are their qualifications on the topic?
  4. Briefly compare and contrast the two sources according to their respective authority. How does the information compare? Is one source more credible than the other?
  5. What further questions do you have? What have you learned? Has your research question become more focused? How has it changed?
  • Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length (not counting title and reference page) and formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA (Links to an external site.).
  • Papers should be double-spaced, using 12-point type in Times New Roman font. Be sure to include a reference page in addition to the APA citations even though you included the citation in your essay.
  • You may wish to review the Template Paper (Links to an external site.) for help formatting your essay according to the requirements.
  • Review the grading rubric to see how you will be graded for this assignment.

Previous question I proposed and researched was: WHO IS ODIN? Here is the other needed sources it talks about I used previously.

1. Who was Odin?

2. Burge, K. (2005). Old Norse Myths, Literature and Society. Parergon, 22(2), 204-206. and as a secondary source I chose (2018, July 31). Retrieved January 16, 2020, from I used a book and a video.
