Using the approved topic, you will create an annotated bibliography that is at least 6–7 full and
complete pages of original discussion and narrative–excluding the title page and reference list–
that utilizes at least 8 scholarly articles from peer-reviewed journals, published within the past 5
years. Once approved by the instructor, these 8 articles may be used again on the Literature
Review: Part 3 – Final Submission Assignment.
References may not come from websites, blogs, newspapers, books, textbooks, dictionaries,
conference proceedings, magazines, dissertations or theses.
General format and sequence
Body:This main section will consist of the annotations for all eight articles.
Begin each annotation with a complete reference for the article, just as it will appear on
the reference list.
The annotation (short description) for each reference must include all of the following
questions (2-3 complete paragraphs total per article):
o A summary of the article and how it fits in the topic chosen to research.
o A discussion of the depth of the article; sufficiently comprehensive? Too broad,
or too narrow?
o An explanation of how this research will fit into the Literature Review.
o A brief description of the authors, their backgrounds, and their qualifications to
publish in the field of study.
Note: Do not submit an abstract for this portion of the Literature Review.
All pages of all assignments, including the title page and reference list, must be double-spaced and
typed in 12-point Times New Roman fonts with one-inch margins on all four sides. MS Word files
only. The Annotated Bibliography must meet the standards of the current edition of the APA
manual for in-text citations, references, headings, grammar, spelling and mechanics.
