Creating An Annotated Bibliography

How To Create An Annotated Bibliography

The research process is messy, and an annotated bibliography can help you keep track of all your sources. An annotated bibliography is a list of sources one has used or will use for researching a topic, and it contains a summary and/or evaluation of each source. An annotated bibliography consists of citations and annotations (paragraph summaries about each article).

Citations: Write down the bibliographic information (author(s), title, date, article title, journal title, etc) of each source and put it in alphabetical order by the author's last name. For this class, we are using APA format.

APA Example: 

Gleaves, J., & Lehrbach, T. (2016). Beyond fairness: The ethics of inclusion for transgender and intersex athletes. Journal of the Philosophy of Sport43(2), 311–326. Retrieved from http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=s3h&AN=116269917&site=ehost-live


Annotation: Annotations can consist of summary, evaluation, and/or reflection, and are written in paragraph form. It can be difficult to remember what each source is about, especially if you have several. Writing up a summary of each source can help you remember the information in each of your sources. Ask yourself: What are the main points of this source? (Summary is bolded in the example.)The following is an example of APA bibliographic information with an annotation:
