Consider how you would integrate a source into your work.
Is it useful for:
- Background Information: is it part of the body of literature related to your research?
- Exhibit: does the study exhibit results that you will interpret for your yourself and for benefit of your reader?
- Argument: do the study's results affirm, contradict, refine, or extend your own argument?
- Method: will the study's methods inform your own methods or be replicated in part?
