HLTH 317 (Marinaro): Overview

Library Instruction Goals

This guide can help you:

Form an approach to initiating the research assignment.

Explore topics for your paper or project. What made you select a particular object?

Explore SU Library's information resources.

Start to gather information for an assignment.


Prepare an annotated bibliography using five scholarly (peer-reviewed) sources (review papers, case studies, or research studies no non-scholarly sources should be used). At least three of the five sources must be original research studies. A copy of the article must be submitted in order for the annotation to be graded. 

All three components of an AB entry are required for full credit on the assignment.

1. An APA style citation

2. A paragraph indicating the researcher authority, research question, brief methodology (including participant characteristics), and major results & conclusions.

3. A short paragraph (3-5 sentences) regarding your assessment of the article's relevance to your topic. Include a comparison to the other articles in your AB. 

You will be completing this project individually. You must have five unique sources; if you duplicate a source used by your partner, neither of you will receive credit for that entry.
