CREDIBILITY OF AN ARTICLE 2
The credibility of an Article
The credibility of sources is dependent on the reliability of information for supporting a
particular study, the author's credentials and the reputation of the publishing organization. The
chosen article “Differential Associations of Religious Involvement with the Mental Health of
Asian-American Subgroups: A Cultural Perspective” by Amy A, Hoa B. and Appel Ethel.
Details about one of the authors, academic training and the institutions where they work are
indicated in the article. However, there is no indication of the author’s publications in the past.
One of the authors, Amy Ai, has been involved in an article on the same topic but with a
different publication indicating the reliability and credibility of the source. The author seems to
be an expert in the field, and her thoughts are valuable on the particular topic, and the evidence is
considered more persuasive.
The authors are not associated with any particular group or association that would result
in any form of conscious or unconscious bias on the topic. The authors rather seem to be
motivated by the increasing growth of the minority ethnic group of the Asian Americans which
shows an increase in the heterogenic patterns of the religious patterns and experiences and their
impact on the individuals’ mental health and the ethnic group’s association of cultural factors
affecting their mental and physical health.
The article was published in a journal, The Journal of Religion and Health, thus making
it a more credible source on the topic. The journal is popular based on matters concerning health
and religion. I have gained familiarity with the publication in my research. The journal is widely
held and offers peer-reviewed publications exploring religion and its impact on health research.
