PART 1D
1. Are the authors experts?
Journal 1: 4 (high quality)- The authors of the article are experts- one is in the school of biosciences and the other is in the peninsula college of medicine and dentistry
Journal 2: 3 (moderate)- they have not provided background history about the authors
2. Is the website owned by a well-known, trustworthy organization?
Journal 1: Yes (4) – Public library of science is a trustworthy organization that has credible science journals
Journal 2: No (2) – It is a registered publishing corporation but it is not widely known thus not very reliable
3. Is the article referenced, and are the sources of the information reliable?
Journal 1: Yes (4) – it has several referenced sources that are reliable
Journal 2: No (0) – it does not have any referenced sources or articles
4. Is the purpose of the website to provide unbiased information to the public?
