ENGL2030 Annotated Bibliography
Select an audience whom you wish to inform about a certain topic and research question. Research and write an MLA or APA formatted annotated bibliography (the discipline you study will determine your citation style) with that audience in mind.
Include a minimum of 10 academic sources that directly relate to your self-selected, narrowed inquiry question. Write a 150-200 word, ethically sourced, summary of each article, chapter, interview, etc. that demonstrates your understanding of each author’s key points and describes the value of the source in relation to your research question(s). Again, be sure that you appeal to your designated audiences’ questions or concerns about your research.
What is the purpose of this assignment?
The purpose of the annotated bibliography is to communicate the complexities of scholarly work that relates to your research question to another researcher or stakeholder. In its most basic form, it also helps researchers keep track of a body of academic research. Finally, the annotated bibliography tests a key skill needed in academia and in life: the ability to compose a succinct, ethical, and accurate synthesis of complex academic texts and to show potential relationships between those scholarly works.
The primary audience: Designated stakeholders who can influence change through becoming (more) informed.
The secondary audience: Other researchers who can benefit from a shortcut to finding quality, seminal sources on a given topic or research question.
The Nuts and Bolts of the Annotated Bibliography – All Annotated Bibs should include
- A controversial research question: use the question as your annotated bibliography’s title.
- An introduction to your work that defines your intended audience and situates the reader within the context of your research. Who do you want to read this? What is your reasoning for defining this audience? What problem are you trying to understand and/or solve? Why is that problem significant at this moment in time (urgency)? What is at stake? What could be lost or gained by neglecting to be informed?
- Each annotation should be around 150-200 words.
- Each annotation should begin with your citation in MLA or APA format followed by your annotation.
- Annotations should be organized alphabetically by the first word in the citation (usually the author’s last name, if it’s available).
- Annotations should consist primarily of a concise, representative summary of the source’s central argument and 1-2 sentences reflecting on the value of the source in terms of how it addresses your overall quest to answer your research question(s).
- Sources must represent multiple viewpoints on this issue. Make sure your research is balanced and recognizes the complexities of the issue. Most issues have more than two “sides.”
- All sources must be credible, research-based sources from academic journals, library databases, and field-specific websites that pass all of the credibility tests.
- No more than two articles can come from any single source (e.g., no more than three articles from the same edited collection can be used).
- No more than two of your sources can be Internet-only sources (information only published on websites without print or journal publication).
- One of your sources must be an international source.
- Be sure to use ethical summarizing techniques to avoid plagiarism.
- The final version should be fully edited for grammar, mechanical, and stylistic accuracy.
Your visual representation/infographic should classify all of your research and show the relationship between various sources on your annotated bibliography. See the samples provided. Use the author’s last name and/or the article title on your infographic. You can hand draw your graphic, use a Web 2.0 program like Venngage or Prezi to design your graphic in your browser, create a single PowerPoint slide with text and images, or use Microsoft Word’s Smart Art feature to demonstrate the relationships between sources. Those more advanced with graphic design may use Photoshop or Illustrator to create their visual representations
