The annotated bibliography must contain a minimum of 8 sources. Two (2) of these sources can be a magazine or news article, but they must be related to your topic and research question. Six (6) of your sources must be scholarly, peer-reviewed, academic sources that are related to your sexuality topic and research question. If you provide sources that are not academic, peer-reviewed sources, then you will receive 0 points for that annotation.You can include more sources if you want to, but please do not include more than 12 sources. Any extra sources over the 8-source limit, do not need to be academic, peer-reviewed sources.
Introduce your bibliography with a paragraph that states your research question and introduces your research topic with an explanation of why your topic is important. (5 points)
Each annotation needs to contain these 5 core components:
ASA or APA citation (1 point)
Establish the author’s authority: who is the author(s) and what makes the author an authority on the subject? Does the author cite their credentials or experience? (2-3 sentences). (1 point)
Summarize/describe the main points in the article: identify the author’s research question/main point, hypothesis, research methodology, and/or findings/conclusions (3-6 sentences). (5 points)
Critical Analysis: provide at least one critique of the author’s methods, i.e., sampling method, sampling size, sampling demographic, ethics, appropriateness of research design/data collection strategy, critique of data analysis, author biases, lack of evidence, etc. Alternatively, how is the information presented (as fact or opinion)? If presented as fact, is the information accurate? Is there a bias (cultural, political, or religious), and is their bias clearly stated? (3-6 sentences). (5 points)
Explain how the article is relevant to your topic, and how it may or may not be useful for your research topic. If the source is not directly related to your topic, then identify why it is useful and why you chose to include it in your bibliography. In this section, you may also compare and contrast the article to another article in your bibliography, for example, while Burghardt’s (2006) research examined sexual identities, Powers’ (2008) research examined sexual desires. (3-6 sentences) (5 points)
Conclude your annotated bibliography with a paragraph summarizing what you have learned about your topic through the articles that you have annotated. (5 points)
