The Annotated Bibliography will be a springboard used to build upon as you work through the

assignments in this course. Start by digging into the literature and identify a business topic

related to your cognate that interests you and needs further exploration. Next, create an annotated

bibliography using resources you have researched on the topic of interest. Place all of the

references in APA format. Beneath each reference, write an annotation. Remember that this

document will be used as a springboard as you progress through the program. Please note that

annotations are not mere summaries of the work; instead, the best annotations evaluate the work.

They also inform the researcher how they could use that resource for their research study. Each

of these three areas would likely have its own paragraph. The annotations should be clear and

concise, providing enough information that the reader does not need to read the entire article or

text. You will use the information in this assignment to build your problem statement for next

week’s assignment.

There should be a minimum of ten scholarly references published within the last five years. Each

annotation should be approximately 150 words. You want to be concise but informative. Refer

to the Annotated Bibliography grading rubric for additional project insights.



Criteria to consider for bibliography content:

 A brief statement regarding the author and his/her credentials as an authority.

 A crisp statement regarding the relevance of this article for your topic.

 A salient or meaningful quote from the article that you would likely cite if you were to

write an essay on this topic.

 A concise evaluation of the author’s work and how you could use the resource for your

research study.

 Note: Each annotation should be approximately 150 words. Be concise but informative.

 Note: Ten scholarly resources published within the last five years.
