Outline and Annotated Bibliography

By now, your topic keyword searches in the library’s peer-reviewed journal databases and other readings have likely provided you with a good set of references to support your course project. In this assignment, you will need to organize your thoughts in an outline and present the pertinent references you have found on your topic so that your instructor can give you feedback about the direction and breadth of your project.

Assignment Instructions

After completing research on your topic and collecting a substantial number of peer-reviewed articles that give you an accurate understanding of all aspects of your topic, complete your assignment.

There are two parts to this assignment:

  1. An outline containing your proposed section headings for your final project and a brief, cited description under each heading summarizing what that heading’s section will contain.
  • The outline describes your proposed plan for your final project and should demonstrate that the plan is evidenced-based and well supported.
  • The outline should contain succinct descriptions summarizing the proposed content for each section so that your instructor can ascertain the intended flow of your final paper.
  • The outline needs to include in-text citations for all references from your references list. Do not include references in your annotated references list that are not also synthesized and cited in-text in the body of the outline.
  • An annotated references list of at least 5–7 resources for your paper. An annotated references list includes correct APA citations of resources, as well as a brief summary following each reference citation in the list describing each article and how it will be used in your final paper.


When creating your outline, be sure to:

  • Clearly explain the plan for your final project and demonstrate that your direction is well supported and evidenced-based.
  • Create headings and subheadings that indicate the sections of your paper.
    • These should clearly spell out the direction and flow of your entire paper.
    • You need a minimum of five sections with headings, including the references section.
  • Describe the type of information and general direction for each section underneath the heading or subheading.
    • This description must be evidence-based, and so must include in-text citations.
  • Cite peer-reviewed journal articles that support your approach for your plan. Be sure to use correct APA formatting for the in-text citations.

Annotated References List

When creating your annotated references list, be sure to:

  • Include a minimum of 5–7 peer-reviewed journal articles.
    • These articles need to be representative of your literature search to date.
    • This will not be your comprehensive references list. You will add to it as you continue to develop your final paper.
    • Again, any reference present in the annotated reference list must be present in the outline.
  • Create an annotation that:
    • Summarizes the article.
    • Justifies how the reference supports your paper’s topic.
    • Evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the reference.
