Q: How do we determine if a book is reliable?
What should be checked?
The parameters of assessing the quality of an academic book are fairly similar to those for evaluating an article’s quality. We have a few other queries on the site discussing this. You may refer to them here:
- What makes a published article a high quality one?
- How can one assess the quality of a book or monograph, especially that in the humanities and social sciences (HSS)?
Hope that helps.
