FORMAT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY
1. American Psychological Association (APA) Style
2. a. Be sure to provide the COMPLETE BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION in APA STYLE, INCLUDING ELECTRONIC INDENTIFICATION (e.g., DOI or URL if appropriate).
b. For each entry, include a 2-3 paragraph summary of the entry’s main points and/or your overall evaluation of the reference. The summary should be in your own words and not simply copied from the entry abstract or some other source; each citation summary should be written in complete sentences, typed, double-spaced, one-inch margins all around, 10-point font (10 entries total, 20 points per entry, submitted via Moodle no later than WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, by 11:55pm).
c. ALL bibliographic entries should be from scholarly journals or book chapters (either online or hard copy; NO WIKIPEDIA CITATIONS).
d . The 10 entries should generally cover the theories/chapters in the book. In other words, you should not turn in 10 citations on a single theory; with flexibility you can draw from a variety of crime theories. There may be some repetition of content in your choices of chapters/articles, but the purpose is to thoroughly familiarize yourself with the information in the process of answering the weekly discussion questions. It is recommended that you search for articles while reading each chapter week-by-week, and choose references that will add to your knowledge of the theories and aid in answering the discussion questions.
e. It will be easiest for you to research and choose your entries via electronic searches, but you may also search hard copy sources in a library. I do not need nor want hard copy articles of your sources, BUT YOU MUST SUPPLY COMPLETE BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATIONS PER A AND B ABOVE.
f. The entries should be organized as a list alphabetized by author’s last name per APA Style. The title should read ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF CRIMINOLOGICAL THEORIES. This annotated bibliography should be typed (double-spaced, one-inch margins all around) and submitted to me via Moodle no later than Monday, May 1, 2017 by 11:55pm.
