There are hundreds of databases to choose from, and often you will want to choose a database that covers your subject area. Databases are usually created around a particular field, or based on "scholarliness".
SIFT is a series of actions you can take to determine the validity and reliability of claims and sources on the web.
The SIFT method, or strategy, is quick and simple and can be applied to various kinds of online content: news articles, scholarly articles, social media posts, videos, images, etc.
Each letter in SIFT corresponds to one of the Four Moves:
Investigate the source
Find better coverage
Trace claims, quotes and media to the original context
