- The APA explains that an annotated bibliography is essentially a summation of citations to books, articles, Websites, and scholarly documents. Each citation is followed by a short (usually about 150 words) paragraph, â€œthe annotationâ€. The purpose of completing an annotated bibliography is to gather a comprehensive list of like-kind resources that help an individual or group towards their collective research body. This is inching the group towards their final project. For this assignment, you will need to collect twelve (12)crediblesources. This includes peer review journal articles, books, news articles (not blogs entries), books, or government documents that contribute to the completion of your research paper.
- Cite each entry correctly in APA format.
- Provide a substantive well-written description of the entry that is 150-200 words each. The annotated entry must be flawless of grammar errors and contextually relevant to the paper topic..
