One of the core competencies necessary to succeed in a doctoral program is the ability to identify other research that pertains to a specific topic. This means you’ll have to identify similar research, read the papers, and assimilate prior work into your own research. An annotated bibliography helps you develop and hone these research skills.
As part of the Residency Project, you will individually develop an Annotated Bibliography this week. At the residency, you will share this with your group, discuss policymaking in the digital age along with the peer-reviewed articles you have located and come up with a research topic for your group
This assignment is listed on the syllabus as “Annotated Bibliography” and is worth 10% of your grade. Your paper will be an annotated bibliography, specifically focusing on the topic of using the information and communications technology for policymaking. The papers you select must address how IT is used to model behavior for policymaking. An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150 -200 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited. A separate reference page is NOT required.
Your paper must be in correct APA format, use correct grammar, and will need to include at least five (5) resources, ALL of which must:
1) Be current. Published within the last five years.
2) Be peer-reviewed.
3) Relate directly to using the information and communications technology for policymaking. The papers you select must address how IT is used to model behavior for policymaking.
USE YOUR OWN WORDS!!!! DO NOT PLAGIARIZE!!!!
Remember that an annotation is not the same as an abstract. Abstracts are descriptive. Your annotations are to be evaluative and critical. Give me enough information for me to decide if I’m interested enough to read the paper, and also how you perceive the paper. Don’t go skimpy on these annotations, but DO NOT write too much here. Quality is far more important than quantity. This exercise is for each of you to demonstrate that you can identify, categorize, and digest multiple research papers.
Every resource you choose must be peer-reviewed. That means the paper must have undergone a formal peer review before being published in a journal or presented at a conference. You must ensure that your resources have undergone rigorous reviews. In most cases, you can find out the review process for a conference or journal by visiting the appropriate web site. Do not simply assume that a resource is peer-reviewed – check it out.
