Assignment Instructions
An APA formatted Annotated Bibliography of 6 peer-reviewed, evidence-based academic journal articles from the APUS Online Library is required by the end of Week 4. This assignment requires a properly formatted title page and a Reference list containing a listing of each article followed by a brief summary (or “annotation”) of what it is about. The summaries must be paraphrases, not quotes, and the articles, not their abstracts, must be summarized to show that you have read them

Full text PDF copies (not library links or abstracts) of the 6 articles selected for the Annotated Bibliography must be attached to its assignment page no later than the Annotated Bibliography deadline. The assignment tab is set to accept multiple attachments so you should not have problems with attaching the PDF copies as long as you attach them one at a time and click “Submit” after each attachment.

Below are tips for how to write an annotated bibliography.

Annotated bibliographies are usually done in preparation for a number of types of writings, including college papers, published articles, theses and dissertations. In the case of this assignment you will not be writing a paper (you have written many while progressing through your degree and should be quite skilled in composing papers by the time you reach this the capstone course), but demonstrating that you can construct an annotated bibliography that would be used for one.
You may not have ever had to construct an annotated bibliography before. It requires you to read and briefly summarize each article you plan to use for a college paper. Put simply, the annotated bibliography is like an extension of the APA style “References” list of published sources that is placed at the end of one’s writing with the addition of a very brief summary paragraph (usually around 150 words) underneath each source listed. These summaries should include not just synopses of what you read in articles but also statements about each article’s connection to another in relation to a larger assignment topic. Summaries in the annotated bibliography may look very similar to an abstract that you have seen in a published article but the two serve different purposes. Author abstracts merely summarize what to expect when reading the article and, of course, aren’t in the reader’s words. In writing the annotated bibliography you are summarizing in your own words, and both for your own use and your prof’s evaluation, each article you would like to use for the literature review. Students sometimes find a stack of articles, either literally if printed out or in electronic form if on their PCs or laptops, intimidating and unmanageable. The annotated bibliography helps you get a sense, as you compare the brief bibliography summaries, of how your selected articles connect or don’t connect thematically with each other and to a larger topic. If they don’t connect, it’s time to go back to the library and conduct another search.
An example from an annotated bibliography for a paper focused on family living situations and variability in household sex roles is below to give you an idea of what a bibliography entry for it would look like. Note the last sentence in the summary for this example, “In contrast, an earlier study by Williams, Barnes and Daniels cited below shows no significant gender differences in sex role attitudes as a result of nonfamily living.” It refers to an article not shown, which would go below the Waite, Goldschneider and Witsberger (1986) article, because, as is also the case with any APA formatted “References” list, articles in an annotated bibliography are arranged alphabetically by last name of first author of each article; thus in this case, an article with Williams as the first author would be next on the list after one with Waite as the first author (also note when viewing this example that APA requires double line-spacing within citations but the annotation [very brief article summary] doesn’t have to be double-spaced—this is a rare exception to the typical APA double-spacing rule); but more importantly, this sentence shows clearly how the example article summarized here and the next one that would follow it would be connected by the common threads “non-family living” and “sex roles”, which are variables examined in both articles. This exemplifies what is meant by “thematically related.” Your articles don’t have to have all their variables in common but there should be a clear connection between them and this sample is a great example of that. Also note that the article example below is about research actually conducted by its authors (this is what is meant by “evidence-based”) and not somebody's opinions about, expertise and/or observations on a topic. You must use “evidence-based” articles like this one in your annotated bibliography, regardless of how expert on the topic the author of an expert opinion or observation on a topic article may be.

Finally, note that this example comes from a journal titled “Sociological Review”. The journals you use need to have a psychology focus. Although many do, not all psychology related journals have the word psychology in them. Marriage and Family Review and the Journal of Vocation Behavior are examples of the many, many journals that are acceptable even though they don’t have the word “psychology” in their titles. You may want to check out the websites, http://psych.hanover.edu/Krantz/journal.html and http://www.ldb.org/soc-jour.htm for an idea of just how many there are, and these are not complete lists!

n order to gain a deeper understanding of how ads are constructed, I will ask you to write
a paper analyzing two TV/online commercials. The two advertisements should be
related but different (e.g., the same product by two competing companies or a single
product/brand at two different points in time). The paper should aim to explain how they
are generally different (or the same) and why, while making reference to specific
marketing techniques found in the ads. Some specific questions to consider might be:
How are the ads geared to a specific lifestyle or demographic? What techniques do they
use to make the ads more memorable? What needs do the ads fill? Do they appeal to
emotion or cognition? Do they use peripheral or central routes to persuasion? Are they
dramas, lectures or neither? Which principle(s) of persuasion do they use (scarcity,
reciprocity, etc.)? Do they encourage social comparison? What (if any) type of social
power do the ads access? 

Your analysis should be based on information found in class and in your textbook
(chapter 2 to 13), and the ads should be accessible online (e.g., YouTube). Additional
references (beyond the textbook) are encouraged, but not required. The paper should be
approximately two to four pages long (double-spaced, 12-point font, 1” margins) and
will be marked on content as well as structure and grammar. The ads should be
submitted on Moodle before class on June 4
th
(1%), and the final paper should be
submitted online before class on June 20th
(19%). Note that the ads may promote a
charity, event or action, rather than a product or service

These Ads should be related like two Nike ad or could be Nike ad vs Puma Ad
