This assignment will be one of several throughout your PhD program that we use to help you prepare for the dissertation process. One of the core competencies necessary to succeed in a doctoral program is the ability to identify other research that pertains to your own. This means you’ll have to identify similar research, read the papers, and assimilate prior work into your own research. An annotated bibliography helps you develop and hone these research skills.

This annotated bibliography should specifically focus on the approved topic for your research paper due in Week 7 (*see Topic Selection assignment from Week 2). The resources you select must clearly align with the research topic. This is not expected to be a complete bibliography of every resource that you review in the process of your research. Rather, it should identify and discuss those resources that you found most influential in the development of your research.

You paper must be in correct APA format, use correct grammar, and will need to include at least seven (7) resources, ALL of which must:

1) Be current. Published within the last few years.

2) Be peer-reviewed.

3) Relate directly to your topic

For each annotation, your should provide;

1) the APA formatted reference entry.

2) analysis of the credibility of the resource.

3) justification of the value of the resource to development of your research.

USE YOUR OWN WORDS!!!! DO NOT PLAGIARIZE!!!!

Remember that an annotation is not the same as an abstract. Abstracts are descriptive. Your annotations are to be evaluative and critical. Give me enough information for me to decide if I’m interested enough to read the paper, and also how you perceive the paper. Don’t go skimpy on these annotations, but DO NOT write too much here. Quality is far more important that quantity. This exercise is for each of you to demonstrate that you can identify, categorize, and digest multiple research papers.

Every resource you choose must be peer reviewed. That means the paper must have undergone a formal peer review before being published in a journal or presented at a conference. You must ensure that your resources have undergone rigorous reviews. In most cases, you can find out the review process for a conference or journal by visiting the appropriate web site. Do not simply assume that a resource is peer reviewed – check it out.
