Goal of the Exercise:  To review some key books and/or articles on topics that relate to your research questions before you start writing your paper.  The purpose is to insure that you develop an understanding of the context for your proposed research.

Note: If you are unclear as to what an annotated bibliography is, see the attached slidedeck.

Components/Structure  of the Annotated Bibliography:

  1. Introduction:Open your annotated lit review witha one or two paragraph statement outlining the scope of your annotated bibliography (hint this can be a summarized version of your abstract), your reasons for choosing the references you looked at, and the key points you learned from the literature.  The references you choose should represent a coherent body of intellectual thought (e.g., don’t just select the first 8 sources listed in EbscoHost, GeoBase, or Google Scholar). This means you will have to look at a lot more articles than the ones you choose to summarize in your annotated bibliography. You ought to have at least 8 references.
  1. Annotated Bibliography:  The annotated bibliography follows the introduction.  Your total bibliography should be 4 to 8 pages in length (single spaced, 12 pt font ).  Each annotated bibliography entry must include:
    • A full citation:

i.      Author(s) [include ALL authors – do NOT use the term et al.], date. Title.  Journal/Book title.  Volume number/Publisher, pages.

ii.      For example:  Marcus, W.A.,  Hansen, A.H., and Pool, J.K., 2001, Remote sensing of river habitats using high spatial resolution hyperspectral imagery. International Journal of Remote Sensing 5(1):231-244.

For articles:

    • An overview  paragraph:

i.      what the article was about

ii.      perspectives/background of the authors writing the article

iii.      advantages/drawbacks of the approaches discussed in the article

    • A thesis-relevance paragraph that discusses points in the article of particular relevance to your research questions.

The two (not three or more) paragraphs should not be a paraphrasing of the abstract, but should focus on what is relevant to understanding the perspective taken by the authors and the specific utility (or lack thereof) of the article to your work..

For books:

    • An overview  paragraph:

i.      what the book was about

ii.      perspectives/background of the authors writing the book

iii.      advantages/drawbacks of the approaches discussed in the book

    • A thesis relevance page that discusses points in the book of particular relevance to your research questions.
  1. Optional – but very helpful to you in the long run: A digital bibliography in EndNote or some other citation software format
