Your Research Paper’s Annotated Bibliography
Select a topic that interests you and do some research. Your selected topic will be the topic for your paper in this class. For this assignment you need to complete an annotated bibliography of the sources you are finding for your research paper. As you continue to work on your project, add to your list, so that when you are ready for your final draft you can remove the unused citations and all annotations. After these things are removed and your page is re-titled References, it will be ready to submit as part of the final paper. Here are the things you should look for in a good annotated bibliography:
- You use university-level resources that are authoritative, correct, unbiased, current and coherent.
- Your title is bibliography, not references. Your authors are listed in alphabetical order, and there is a short explanation after every citation.
- Your citations are APA formatted (with hanging indent) and each needed block of text is in the appropriate order.
- You offer a description of the source’s usefulness: statistics, clever quote, graph, table, fact or other relevant information. If a source is not useful, you note that it is not going to be used in your paper.
