How would you choose research sources? What factors should be taken into consideration? How can you know your sources are legitimate?

When I am choosing sources I look for a scholarly source in different databases that have approved sources. One great database is EBSCOhost. It compiles many different scholarly articles together so you know that they have been peer-reviewed and are a trusted source. Also, I try to make sure the source is less than 10 years old so that the information is still accurate. You can tell if your sources are legitimate by the qualifications of the author, or who the sources were from. If they are from bad sources that aren’t factual information you cannot use them.
