Please avoid meta-analysis research and mixed methods research.

Annotated Bibliography Step-by-Step

  • An AB is a summary of the research article(s)
  • Be sure to first include APA citation
  • Mention the title of the text, the author’s first and last name, and the author’s thesis/hypothesis.
  • State the research’s main ideas and key points. This should be done briefly and accurately and in your own words. This is your summary and should be built on your words. If you borrow a word, phrase, or sentence from the text, be sure to include an in-text citation in APA format.
  • Do not include your opinion in the summary. The sole purpose is to summarize the article.
  • In the summary you should include a description of the sample/participants, the methodology, and the results of the study.

Articles to avoid:

-medical observations

-research written by someone other than the primary research. The selected articles should not be a summary of another person’s work or a meta-analysis. A meta-analysis is a summation of several similar but separate studies.
