Annotated Bibliography

 

Developing your Annotated Bibliography

An annotated bibliography is an alphabetical list of citations (author, title, publication year, etc.) for articles, books, and documents used in your research project. Each citation is followed by a brief descriptive and evaluative paragraph (the annotation). 

The annotation may include: 

  • a brief summary of the content; 
  • a note of any limitations that item may have, e.g. level, timeliness, etc.;
  • a description of the target audience; 
  • an evaluation of the research methods used; 
  • comments on the reliability of the item;
  • a description of the author's background; 
  • a summary of the author's conclusions; 
  • a commentary on how the item may be useful for your research. 

Remember: Check with your instructor to find out which citation style is preferred for your class (APA, MLA, etc.).
