Research Project: Annotated Bibliography Instructions
The Annotated Bibliography is designed to assist you with your Research Paper references, teach you how to search for scholarly journal articles, as well as to practice using proper in-text citations.
You will select 3 journal articles that to your Research Topic identified in Module/Week 2 (MY TOPIC IS SEX AND THE PSYCHOPATHY). Choose articles that will be helpful to you in your Research Paper assignment as well as articles that have been published in the last 10 years. Save each article as a PDF file that you will submit along with your Annotated Bibliography. It is recommended that you read and review the Research Paper Instructions at this point.
Your Annotated Bibliography must be 200–300 words of the 3 articles that you selected. (You will have your first reference listed, then a review of the article, then the next reference listed and a review of that article, and then the third reference listed and a review of that article.) It is required to be 2–3 pages and does need to include a title page, abstract page, or reference page. However, each reference must be listed correctly before the review in current APA format.
The review portion will give a general synopsis of each article that you read. You must paraphrase; do not include any direct quotes. Do not cite other sources outside of the article that you are reviewing.
As you search Liberty’s Online Library, be sure to select “Full-Text” and “Peer-Reviewed.” You may narrow your search by selecting portions of the theory, key words, or phrases to use as your search parameters. It is preferred that the journals you select have the word “Journal” in the title (Journal of Marriage and Family, etc.). Ideally, each article that you review should have a Methods section, Data, Results, and Conclusion sections as headings. You must use book reviews, obituaries, magazine articles, or online articles that have not been published in scholarly journals.
A grading rubric is provided to ensure you follow the assignment expectations.
Your Annotated Bibliography and 3 PDF’s are due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 4.
