  5. 5. <ul><li>Publication Process </li></ul><ul><li>Print Sources: Traditional print sources go through an extensive publication process that includes editing and article review. </li></ul><ul><li>Internet Sources: Anyone with a computer and access to the Internet can publish a website or electronic document. </li></ul>Printed Sources vs. Internet

  7. 7. <ul><li>Sources and Quotations </li></ul><ul><li>Print Sources: In most traditional publications, external sources of information and direct quotations are clearly marked and identified. </li></ul><ul><li>Internet Sources: Sources the author used or referred to in the text may not be clearly indicated in an Internet source. </li></ul>Printed Sources vs. Internet
  8. 8. <ul><li>Bias and Special Interest </li></ul><ul><li>Print Sources: While bias certainly exists in traditional publications, printing is more expensive and difficult to accomplish. Most major publishers are out to make a profit and will either not cater to special interest groups or will clearly indicate when they are when they are catering to special interest groups. </li></ul><ul><li>Internet Sources: The purpose of the online text may be misleading.
