Evaluating Websites

Lack of systematic quality control means critical evaluation of Web sites is crucial. When evaluating web resources, consider:

  • Authority: Is the author or site sponsor clearly identified? Can you find credentials and contact information?
  • Objectivity: Is the site's purpose clear? Is it directed toward a specific audience?
  • Coverage: Are the topics covered clear? In depth? Balanced? Are ideas and opinions backed up by evidence?
  • Accuracy: Are sources cited? Can you verify accuracy of facts and other information with other sources in the field?
  • Currency: Are the dates included in the website? Is the information current, or at least still relevant for the site's and your purpose?

This RSS feed is provided by Phylo, a "job wiki" for the philosophical community. The purpose of the wiki is to enable academic job seekers to share and gain information about job openings in academic philosophy. This is not a job listing service.  It is only a user-annotated catalog of job listings. We do not aim to provide complete descriptions of job openings or contact information for departments that are hiring. Job seekers should refer to the original job listing (e.g., in Jobs for Philosophers) for details on all positions listed here.
