Which of the following would help you clearly determine whether a source is primary or secondary?
a. Abstract of the article
b. Author’s name and affiliation
c. List of references
d. Title of the article
A primary source is desirable, and abstracts provide additional information that can help determine whether a source is primary or secondary.
The author’s name and affiliation do not let you know what kind of source it is.
The list of references does not provide the reviewer with any evidence to determine if the source is secondary or primary.
The title of an article may or may not tell you whether it is a secondary source.
