Interdisciplinary Annotated Bibliography Instructions

Interdisciplinary Annotated Bibliography Instructions

You will create an annotated bibliography that will serve as the research foundation of potential future work in interdisciplinary research. Your Interdisciplinary Annotated Bibliography must follow current style format of your Area of Study I (including a title page) and consist of at least 10 empirical, scholarly sources that have been published within the last 5 years. All sources must be directly related to your research question. Be sure to select a variety of respected sources you can use in your paper (e.g. journal articles, e-books, scholarly websites, etc.).


Each source citation must be followed by an annotation. The annotations are designed to help your instructor better understand and more easily learn about your topic. The annotation is not a normal required component of current style formats; rather, it is a specific additional requirement for this assignment. Note the following requirements for your annotated bibliography:

·         An annotated bibliography is a list of citations for all resources you used.

·         Each citation is followed by a brief (at least 150 words), descriptive, and evaluative paragraph: the annotation.

·         The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.

·         For more information on annotations, see Annotated Bibliography.


Do not cut and paste abstracts or sections from your sources, as this constitutes plagiarism. Most of the time, this occurs as an innocent oversight on the part of the candidate. Regardless of reason, in the event of plagiarism, you will receive 0 points for the entire assignment.


Your instructor will comment on your annotated bibliography when the grade for the assignment is posted in Grade Center.


It is highly recommend that you use the Jerry Falwell Library resources. You will find many tips for formatting in current styles (APA), navigating databases, locating resources for citation, and returning the best results on your online searches through the JFL Course Guide link in the Assignment Instructions folder. Additionally, a Library Liaison is available to assist you in all matters pertaining to conducting your research, including what constitutes an acceptable article (reputable professional and/or scholarly journals and/or informational venues that deal with the content of this course).
