Biology 332 Annotated Bibliography:

 

Students often ask for advice about what to include in the annotated bibliography. Here is some standard advice. You need to have a short paragraph for each of your entries.

 

Your annotated bibliography might (should) include the following elements for each article or book:

 

Summarize: What are the main arguments? What is the point of this article? What topics are covered?

 

Assess: Is it a useful source. How does it compare with other sources in your bibliography? What is the goal of this source?

 

Reflect: How does the source fit into your research? Was this source helpful to you? How does it help you shape your argument? Has it changed how you think about your topic?
