Class Discussion: Source Comparison

Let's compare/contrast these sets of sources, considering questions such as:

  • Who is the audience? (General readers, students, scholars / academics...)
  • What's the scope? (Broad, narrow, shallow, deep...)
  • What seems to be the source's purpose? (To report, explain, analyze, comment/editorialize, persuade...)
  • Any clues to the publication process? (Is it self-published, crowd-sourced review, reviewed by a professional or academic editor, peer-reviewed...?)
