BCJ3601 Columbia Southern Battered Woman Defense Annotated Bibliography

HSL 2301 Unit V Annotated Bibliography

Instructions

For this assignment, complete an annotated bibliography for the final research paper related to your chosen topic from Unit III. An annotated bibliography is a list of citations of books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 100 words), descriptive and evaluative paragraph; this is called the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited. This assignment will help you organize your sources for use in the research paper due in Unit VII.

Each annotated bibliography entry consists of two parts; the reference citation in APA format, followed by the summary for that reference. First, locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic from the CSU Online Library. Briefly examine and review the actual items. Then choose five sources that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic. Next, cite each source using APA style in the form of reference citations.

Finally, write a concise annotation below each reference that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article. Include one or more sentences that explain how this work illuminates your bibliography topic. Your annotated bibliography should be at least two pages in length. Include a title page using proper APA style.
