Another method of tracking/organizing your research is using an Annotated Bibliography. An annotated bibliography is one of the most important tools in conducting research. It is a list of sources on a particular topic that includes a brief summary of the article in your own words (not copying the abstract) and the connection that supports your paper.
Once you have identified your primary or secondary research topic(s), then you will begin to research and complete an Annotated Bibliography. .
You must select, read, and review 5 scholarly articles on your human resource topic(s). The articles must be peer reviewed journal articles from either Welder Library Eresources or Google Scholar. Articles from dot com’s or dot org websites will not be accepted.
Provide an annotated bibliography properly formatted in APA that addresses the following for each article.
More information regarding an Annotated Bibliography is located in the module 4 Read and Review section.
An annotated bibliography should avoid first person and be completed using APA format and include:
- The purpose of the study
- The findings of the study
