Annotated Bibliography Instructions


The Annotated Bibliography is designed to assist you with your Research Paper research, by selecting and reviewing 3 scholarly journal articles, as well as to practice using proper in-text citations. It is recommended that you read and review the Research Paper Outline and Research Paper Instructions before completing this assignment. The Annotated Bibliography is the first building block of your Research Paper.


Using the Jerry Falwell Library, you will select 3 full-text, scholarly (peer-reviewed) journal articles that directly relate to 1 or more of the topics listed below and that have been published in the last 7 years. Save each selected article as a PDF file. If you need assistance finding scholarly journal articles, click here to learn how to navigate through the Jerry Falwell Library.

View of Self (in relationship to personality)

Development (in relationship to personality)

Motivation (in relationship to personality)

Maturation (in relationship to personality)


After reviewing each of the articles that you have selected and saved, you will then create a 300–500 word review (with in-text citations) of each article . The review portion of the assignment will give a general synopsis of each article that you reviewed and must note which portion of personality that the article is related to. This assignment does not need to include a title page, abstract page, or reference page; however, each reference must be listed in current APA format at the beginning of each summary. Each article must be cited using current APA format within your review of that particular article.


You must paraphrase; do not include any direct quotes . Proper use of in-text citations is imperative. If you do not include any in-text citations in this assignment, you will receive a zero. You are encouraged to read and review the chapter on in-text citations in your APA manual. Do not cite other sources outside of the article that you are reviewing.


You will submit 4 documents total in your submission: the 3 PDF documents that you saved (1 for each article) and your Annotated Bibliography submitted as a Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) file.


A grading rubric is provided to ensure you follow the assignment expectations.


Submit your Annotated Bibliography by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 3.


Selecting Articles


When you are searching the Jerry Falwell Library, from the library home page, select “Advanced Search,” and be sure to click on the appropriate dates as well as under Show Only : “Items with full text online” and “Scholarly materials, including peer-reviewed. “Under Exclude from results : select all 3. To find useful articles, narrow your search by selecting key words or phrases to use as your search parameters. Remember that the goal is to find articles that relate to personality and the 6 items listed previously.


The articles that you select must be from scholarly journals. It is preferred that the journals you select have the word “Journal” in the title (Journal of Marriage and Family, etc.). Ideally, each journal that you review should have a Methods section as well as Data, Results, and Conclusion sections, but these sections are not required. You must not use book reviews, obituaries, magazine articles, or online articles that have not been published in scholarly journals.
