    What are credible sources? Credible sources are those you can trust. Those from which we can trust that the ideas and information provided come from the author. When doing a research paper we have to make sure that the information provided by the author is backed up with evidence.

    Good night Alejandra, I totally agree with you that scholarly articles are more trustworthy and reliable than other types of articles. Also I think that your comment about a research paper will be a reliable as the source used to create it, is right on point. If an article is writing using sources that are not reliable the article per see will end up being unreliable and surely won’t pass a peer review. This is why, in my opinion it is really important to choose articles that have been reviewed by an expert; since not all scholarly articles are peered…

    In regards to stigma, popular and scholarly sources are not vastly different in their approaches. Both academic and popular sources provide definitions for the different types of stigma that people experience within society. Popular sources do this from a perspective of the person with mental illness while scholarly sources do this from the perspective of society as a whole. Scholarly sources provide experimentation and statistics, while popular sources generally just provide simple definitions and synthesized versions of longer pieces of work. Because of this, the audience is different for the two types of work, where the scholarly source focuses on the researcher and the activist who is trying to find or change the way society functions in…
