Researching with Wikisurgery

Wikisurgery can be a great tool for learning and researching information. However, like all sources, not everything in Wikisurgery is accurate, comprehensive, or unbiased. Many of the general rules of thumb for conducting research apply to Wikisurgery, including:

   * Always be wary of any one single source, or of multiple works that derive from a single source.
   * Where articles have references to external sources (whether online or not) read the references and check whether they really do support what the article says.
   * Many times, an encyclopedia may not constitute an acceptable source for a research paper.

However, because of Wikisurgery's unique nature, there are also some rules for conducting research that are special to Wikisurgery, and some general rules that do not apply to Wikisurgery.
