>> How Selective is the Web?
|Editors review and select; process can be long involving many rewrites||Editors review and select; articles can go through several rewrites||No one/Everyone is "in charge"|
|Publishers try to maintain reputations for quality||Publishers try to maintain reputations for quality||Anyone can create and "publish" anything; there are no standards|
|Libraries select based on reviews (written by experts)||Scholarly journals select articles based on peer review||Search engines are not selective on the basis of quality|
|Libraries select based on publishers' repuations||Periodical indexes select journals based on quality||Only subject indexes select sites based on quality|
In other words ....
You must be your own editor, publisher, and librarian when you do Web research.
