To learn to differentiate types of sources and which is most appropriate for academic writing in the science and technical fields
To learn to comprehend sources in such a way that you can summarize the content, offer an evaluation of them, and plan ahead for how you will use them
What is an annotated bibliography?
A bibliography is a list of sources used in a written text, like an essay or report. An annotated bibliography is a list of sources that offers additional information about those sources; it should explain each source so that an audience unfamiliar with the source can understand the source’s general content, its drawbacks and what it does well, and how you will use it in your paper. In this case, your Annotated Bibliography will contain the sources that you plan to use in your Research Paper later. These sources must be scholarly and reliable: peer-reviewed journal articles, books, or websites ending in .gov or .edu. Any sources not within these parameters, you must ask me to approve before turning in your annotated bib, or else you forfeit credit for that annotation.
The Annotated Bibliography and Research Paper assignments go hand in hand. Your Annotated Bibliography acts as a supplement, like an index or a glossary, for your Research Paper. After you turn in your Annotated Bibliography, you may not change the topic for your Research Paper.
What goes into each annotation?
Each source has its own annotation, and each annotation should be 250-400 words and contain four parts:
The MLA citation for that source
A summary paragraph, in which you summarize the source’s main argument
A evaluation paragraph, in which you evaluate the drawbacks of the source or what it does well; you may also comment on how it relates to other sources or its field of study at large
A paragraph in which you explain the source’s connection to your Research Paper: how you plan to use this source in your paper (ie: for background information, support for your argument, a counterargument you will address, etc.)
Requirements: 1000-1600 words total (250-400 words per annotation)
MLA format (no title page required for this assignment)
No first- or second-person perspective, contractions, slang, or exclamation points; First-person is allowed in the third paragraph of each annotation
Annotated Bibliography Rubric
Note that for each annotation, the paragraphs (summary, critique, and connection to argumentative research paper) are being graded on their quality, clarity, and content, not just for their existence. (For example, if you technically have a summary paragraph, but it is vague, nonspecific, and insubstantial, you will not receive points for it.)
First-person is allowed only in the last paragraph of each annotation.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
