Assignment Details

Requirements for Annotated Bibliography (from Dr. Moe)

Your annotated bibliography (one submission per research pair) is the basis of the literature review for your project and paper.  It must include a minimum of five peer-reviewed research articles and substantive material from three other credible sources such as government webpages, the online food and nutrition encyclopedias available at SPU, the food industry magazine Food Technology (available in the library).  You may substitute a credible relevant book for a peer-reviewed research article.  The articles you will search for will include those about your food product (or similar products), specific ingredients you might be interested in using, and those related to health or disease conditions, e.g., the prevalence and importance of gluten-related disorders if you are developing a gluten-free product. You may include articles that you found and read, but ended up not citing in your paper because, for example, you decided to not use a specific ingredient.  This part of the project is due early in the quarter, so start on it right away.  The requirements are as follows:

For each of the articles and other material list the source using the JAND (AMA) format. In the first paragraph provide a summary of the research question or paper topic, methods of analysis (if appropriate), results, conclusions and recommendations. In the second paragraph, provide an assessment of this paper or source for your research project, i.e., is it useful.  Include any particularly useful definitions or key ideas in quotes with the page number specified. You could also include how it compares with other sources in your bibliography and how it changed how you are thinking about your topic.  

Submit this to TurnItIn as a single spaced 11 or 12 point font document.  Note that it is NOT part of your research paper.
