Is the FBI a credible source that is peer reviewed?

  1. Doing a sociology paper on Serial Killers and I found that the FBI has a massive amount of info about serial killers. But my sources have to be peer reviewed. Here is the link.

    Well certainly the FBI isn't going to publish false info about this subject..

    Would you say the FBI is peer reviewed?
  2. Nah i wouldnt call it that. It depends on the certain article. If its written by someone with their doctorate and published in a journal then yes.
  3. These are just a FEW of the people who helped put this together I think.

    I would think that these are some credible people and I'm sure their work that contributed to this article is peer reviewed. Also like I was saying the FBI isn't going to publish bullshit on their site. It's a government website, how is that not credible :confused: I'm not arguing I'm just legitimately curious, it's such a good source of info.
  4. youre fine. its the government for fucks sake. of course its credible :rolleyes:
  5. Believe me I am with you on the fact that not everything the government says is credible, but in this particular case I think it's credible.
  6. Yeh it is man. trust me...
  7. Is your government a credible source of information?


    Is your government a credible source of information to site for a paper for school?

  8. Thank you lol. I know I had the mindset that it was credible but I just needed to know what other people thought.
