Annotated Bibliography

Why write an annotated bibliography?

To learn about your topic: Writing an annotated bibliography is excellent preparation for a research project. Just collecting sources for a bibliography is useful, but when you have to write annotations for each source, you're forced to read each source more carefully.

Parts to include for each item

  • brief summary (not copied re-statement) of the work’s main ideas
  • the work’s strengths - the author’s point of view –possible underlying assumptions and/or bias
  • the work’s potential importance or usefulness for the topic – including possible intercultural communication themes and/or theories
