Task Details: Annotated Bibliography (Reference List)
In academia, as in business, good reports demonstrate the ability to research and identify relevant material to be used as the basis for considering a question, supporting argument and arriving at justified conclusions or recommendations. While there may be many sources relating to any given topic or question, some will be far more suitable than others.
Good relevant supporting material (see Things to think about when evaluating your sources below) will be:
· Recent (unless considered a seminal or classic article/book)
Using the topic given, pairs need to research and identify 5 different sources which would be relevant if preparing an analysis report for the topic given. Included in the bibliography should be:
· At least 1 peer reviewed article
· At least 1 website
· At least 1 magazine or newspaper article
· At least 1 of the sources reviewed must fail to meet the some or all of the 3 criteria of good supporting material – relevant, recent and credible i.e. be a source you have viewed but decided it would not be appropriate to use – explain why it is not appropriate.
(see Source Types below for more information.)
Wiki anything and About.com MUST NOT be included in your sources good or otherwise. For each source, pairs are to:
1. Cite the material correctly using Harvard (Anglia) referencing style
2. Briefly summarise the main findings or arguments of the source
3. Briefly critique (evaluate) the source’s usefulness, reliability, objectivity or bias, assessing its
strengths and/or weaknesses as if you were writing a research paper on the topic given.
