Warm-up Activity 5.1
Review note-taking tools. Visit the Northcentral library. In the category “Research Help,” click on “Research Resources and then scroll down to Citing Articles. Explore the two note-taking and organizing tools there, RefWorks and EndNote. Also, visit the Zotero and Citeulike websites and review these online note-taking and organizing tools. Choose a tool that best fits your need and you feel most comfortable with.
Warm-up Activity 5.2
Carefully study the following example of how to prepare an annotated bibliography entry. Note that there are four sections to the entry: hypothesis, methodology, conclusion, and evaluation. Be sure to include each of these sections in your annotated bibliography entries. For information on annotated bibliographies, visit https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/614/1/
Begin an annotated bibliography of the articles that you are reviewing. Note all the important sections of the article, as illustrated in the sample above. Also, note not only the articles that you plan to use, but also any article that you read. Be sure to note at the end of the article how useful the article may be for your literature review.
Include the five articles you reviewed in Week 3 and find an additional ten so that there is a total of 15 articles in this version of your Annotated Bibliography. Add a one-page paper that reflects your experiences with note-taking and research tools. Identify those that include features you would like to use and which one, if any, you have adopted for your own use.
Please note that the same rules for a citation that apply to other documents (such as proper paraphrasing and the use of quotation marks where necessary) apply to annotated bibliographies as well. It is not acceptable to cut and paste from the abstract or the body of an article. Rather, you are expected to read the article completely and appropriately paraphrase the necessary material. For those few situations where paraphrasing is not acceptable, then the material that has not been paraphrased needs to be placed in quotation marks. Please refer to the Northcentral University Integrity Policy and tutorial for more information on this.
Length: at least 15 research articles
Your annotated bibliography should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
