In the following article it summarizes many different opinions and facts on how performance enhancing drugs along with street drugs are effecting most collegiate athletes particularly male athletes. There were many tests done that were stated in this article about how many athletes took these performance enhancing drugs, what kind and how it affected their ability when it came to athletics. Also in this article is all of the drugs typically used by athletes, and why they took them. It also talks about the random drug tests and how they find drugs in a athletes system.

When you look at the currency of this article you can see it is from 2009, which is not that current. But as a college athlete and looking at other sources it seems as if the laws and rules of using performance enhancing drugs has been the same not for the past few years, so currency is not of a factor in this article. The information has stayed the same. This article is very relevant to my paper, it is mostly about performance enhancing drugs but also has to do a little about street drugs as well. The intended audience is anyone that plays college athletics, in this articles it targets mostly males. The authority seems pretty promising, a selected group from the school of Rutgers did the surveys and facts about this topic, and the authors seem to have written other articles and papers that are well known. This is a very accurate article The information comes from athletes and is tested by students and professors. From personal knowledge of playing college sports this article seems to be pretty promising. The purpose is to bring to the attention of many that the over usage of performance enhancing drugs happens quiter a bit in college. The purpose of this article is very clear.

This source was very helpful to me as it showed me all the types of drugs used and how it effects college athletes. It is more of just a factual article not for or against my argument, so it will help either way. I will use it when I need good factual information. It changed how i think about it a little but not enough to persuade me to be against it completely.

Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition. Woodland Park, CO: Biomed Central, 2007. International Society of Sports Nutrition Position Stand: Creatine Supplementation and Exercise. 30 Aug. 2007. Web. 18 Feb. 2015.

This article hits and summarizes more on the factual side of using Creating and how it will effect athletes muscle, recovery, weight gain and other aspects about physical attributes. It really explains well what creatine is, how it is made and how it works.

This was published in 2007 so current, maybe not but Creatine has not been changed over the past it has stayed the same so currency isn't of a factor. The information is very relevant because it goes along well with what i think about performance enhancing drugs. it shows that creatine maybe isnt the best supplement, but does alot for your muscles. The intended audience is college athletes. I would want to cite this information in my paper. This like the last article has very good authority, it is written and revised by many well know professors and writers. It is also very accurate, it is information i already know of and it seems to be written by important people, also reviewed by them. The purpose of this article is to inform college athletes about creatine. the information and the purpose of this article is very clear.

The source was helpful because i will be talking about different types of drugs and this one has a lot of information on Creatine. This wont exactly shape my argument but it will give me a lot of good facts and information. Ill use it to explain how Creatine effects the muscles and how it will effect an athletes ability. I still think the same about my side of the argument after this article.

This article is very helpful and summarizes mostly how females use and take supplements to body build or bulk up. They described all the good drugs that can be taken such as vitamins, proteins, calcium and other agents like that can help the body. But it also summarizes the bad agents and things that can be taken.

Again this article is not as relevant as most would like to see but in the past 10 or so years nothing in weight lifting or supplement training has changed. The information has been reviewed by other authors and publishers. This article is pretty relevant the only thing is that it talks more about bulking up and body building then it does with college athletes, but it still does get the supplement point across in this article. The attended audience is any one mostly females that are interested in body building. I would want to cite this in my article. The authority in this is pretty good, a lot of authors and is reviewed by many. it is published by what seems to be a good web site. The article is very accurate when talking about supplements, it gives a lot of information about the good and bad side of it.

This article is a very good way to understand why athletes should educate themselves about supplements before taking them. Although how they word this article in what seems to be a negative way, and very against these supplements i believe they are just trying to teach the outcomes and risk factors. They explain in the content that athletic trainers are a good resource to tell if a substance is illegal, in most cases finding a legal dietary supplement can be quite hard but it is explained how to find them in the text. They also summarize in this text about the proper way to to get your nutrients and continue taking healthy supplements in turn taking care of your body the healthy way will increase performance goals. This article gives very good information on the "right" and "wrong" way to take supplements and make yourself better.

This information for the most part is very current, it was published in 2013 and since then not much has changed regarding banned substances. It is also very relevant when going over my topic of choice, it has everything to do with my topic plus some. it gives great information on how to use these substances in a safe way, which is what i am all for. The audience could be anyone who is either athletic or in a sport or both. The information is at an appropriate level and i would be comfortable with putting it in my paper. The author of this article seems pretty prominent, they have published other popular articles. and with the amount of people who have edited this and revised it means it pretty accurate. The information was written by a trust worthy author who supported his details very well. it has been reviewed by many and is good information.

When reading this i came to the understanding that it is the opposite of what i want to try and convey to my readers, but that is a good thing because I have to see both sides of the issue. The summary of this article is all about the type of negative supplements, Ergogenic, anabolic-androgenic steroids, growth hormone, creatine, and ephedra alkaloids are all the drugs that are considered the bad supplements. The also hit on many good reasons why this is happening, ranging from wanting to look better, being too young and getting pushed into it and also the obvious getting more physically fit for athletics. This article is also more about high school kids that will be in college so they take these drugs and supplements to get the upper hand on competition.

The information is very current it was published in 2013 and hasn't been revised but it has been reviewed and corrected by other authors. The information is very relevant it will help me show both sides of taking supplements both negative and positive. The audience can be anyone in athletics or in college. I couldn't find anything else on the author but he seems to be worthy and he had other authors look over his article. This article is at a good level and it seems appropriate to be used in my paper.

Green, Gary. "NCAA Study of Substance Use and Abuse Habits of College Stud… : Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine." LWW. N.p., Jan. 2001. Web. 24 Feb. 2015

This article does a very good job at explaining all of the bad "drugs" athletes are taking, and because of this it will help drive my point that athletes that are trying to make them self better by taking dietary supplements is better then abusing alcohol or other types of drugs. The article gave stats how student athletes are taking more street drugs and abusing alcohol rather then taking supplements to increase their athletic drive. This article gave a lot of statistics and numbers about how many athletes are abusing these street drugs rather then abusing supplements.

The information is quiet current and seems like it hasn't been revised but has been reviewed. this article will work with other sources and help tie in that there are worse drugs to take rather then supplements. This is relevant and it ties along with my information i will be discussing. The audience can be any athlete. It tool me a while to determine this as my article but it really drives the point home that there is worse stuff you can take. The author is Gary and it seems like he has typed many other articles and is well known. The information will also be good because it was reviewed by multiple people. The information seems very accurate and it is backed up by a lot of facts and numbers, the information has been reviewed and i have heard about most of it before. The purpose of this article is to inform that there is other negatives then just dietary supplements.

This source was helpful, and it really helps shape my argument by saying there is other negatives then just dietary supplements. If an athlete doing performance enhancing drugs that's better then street drugs. I will use this source by making my side of the argument look better. It hasn't changed how i think about my topic.

Hoffmen, Jay. "Effect of Creatine and ß-Alanine Supplementation on Performance and Endocrine Responses in Strength/Power Athletes." N.p., n.d. Web. 24 Feb. 2015.

This article really shines a light on the positives of using a Creatine as a supplement when trying to enhance your performance. it gives alot of numbers and facts how this drug will really help an athlete and not in a negative way. When talking about B-Alanine it says its a great recovery drug and it helps athletes stay fit and healthy. This article does a excellent job at trying to shine light on what seems to be a negative drug, list multiple benefits to it and why it will help a lot.

The information didnt have a date when it was published but when talking about a drug like creatine it doesnt really matter because the supplement hasn't changed in years. The only thing that has changed about the drug is why it is banned and athletes cant take it. The information was not revised. The information really relates to my topic and will help because it shines light in the benefits of this supplement. The audience would be anyone who takes creatine. The author seems well known having written multiple articles about athletics. The information is well supported and i have heard about most of these accusations about creatine and B-Alanine. The information was reviewed by other authors but hasnt been revised. The purpose of this information is to inform about this supplement.

This source was pretty helpful, but i believe i will use the others more then this one. It will help shape my argument by providing positives about Creatine. I will use this source to show that there are good effects to this drug. It hasn't changed how i think about this topic.
