PHE 505 Annotated Bibliography Guidelines and Rubric: Overview: Last week you researched 10 peer-reviewed articles. This week, you will construct an annotated bibliography. The annotated bibliography will assist you in gathering a detailed list of resources to use in your integrative review of the literature.
An annotated bibliography is an organized list of sources with an accompanying paragraph that describes, explains, and/or evaluates each entry in terms of quality, authority, and relevance. The purpose of writing an annotated
bibliography is to provide an overview of the research that has been published on a particular topic.
Your articles should demonstrate at least one of the following:
1. The research has limitations that substantiate the need for further research on this public health issue.
2. The research supports the opinion that this is a critical public health issue worthy of further research.
3. The research design, data analysis methods, and/or research tools/instruments employed by the researcher can be used as models or justification for your research proposal.
Prompt: For this exercise, you will prepare an annotated bibliography with at least five citations. An annotation concisely paraphrases the main idea and purpose of the selected resource. The annotation of a scholarly journal should identify the thesis (or research question, or hypothesis), the methods used, and its
discussion or conclusions. Remember that identifying the purpose is different task than listing the resource’s content. To be more precise, the annotation should state why the content is there. While constructing your annotations, be sure to include the following critical elements:
● Restate argument or thesis, methods, and conclusions
● Evaluate/Critique resource
● Make connection to your research topic
Guidelines for Submission: Submit assignment as a Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins.
Your annotated bibliography must be 2-3 pages and include five sources cited in APA format. Your chosen sources must be recent (within the last five years), peer-reviewed, scholarly journal articles and should appear in alphabetical order
