Annotated Bibliography

The successful applicant will submit an annotated bibliography including a minimum of five sources. All sources cited in the paper must appear on this bibliography. 
  • Each citation appearing on the bibliography must be correctly formatted according to the rules of documentation for the MLA (Modern Language Association), APA (American Psychological Association), CMS (Chicago Manual of Style), or CSE (Council of Science Editors). Applicants may select the style of their choice and must consistently and correctly apply the rules throughout the bibliography.

  • Each citation must be annotated. These annotations must be descriptive and evaluative, indicating a thorough understanding of the material and briefly summarizing the way in which a particular information source informed the writing of the paper.
