You are expected to write an annotated bibliography including at least 10 empirical, peer reviewed articles on the topic of your choice (within the broad area of clinical psychology, all 10 on the same topic). This must include a citation in APA style. Then, for each article provide a summary (at least 5 sentences) and an evaluation/critique of the article (at least 2 sentence). This is due August 2nd, 2020 by 11:59 pm CST. Late papers will be docked one grade level for each 24-hour period that they are late. They will not be accepted after three (3) days. No exceptions, so plan ahead.
There is a document listed under Helpful Tools if you have a question about the format, as it is not written like a paper, simply a citation in APA format, with the summary below it. It is a 5 sentence summary and a 2 sentence critique for each of the 10 articles (all on the same topic of your choice).
Also under Helpful Tools, you will find a video on Finding Peer Reviewed Research articles and a sheet on how to find Empirical Research Articles. I recommend looking at these sources to ensure that you are completing this assignment correctly. Empirical means that data was collected and analyzed, so be sure you are discussing the results and what the researchers found. If there is not a RESULTS section for you to discuss, don’t use that article! It will NOT count and you will automatically lose 10 points.
Again, also under Helpful Tools, there is a links to APA Style Guides and APA Formatting. I also recommend looking at these resources for the same reason. If you don’t like these resources, you can search the internet for “Purdue OWL” and really great resources will come up.
As there are 10 articles, each will be worth 10 points. 3 points for correct APA Style, 4 points for the summary, and 3 points for the critique. When done correctly, it is easy to maintain all points, however, it you repeat the same mistake 10 times, it is easy to lose points quickly as well, which is why I recommend you read all of these resources provided to you under the Helpful Tools Section on Blackboard.
Helpful hint. When I say critique, don’t tell me you liked/didn’t like the article. I want you to evaluate the strengths/weaknesses of the study. What did it do well? What could it have improved? Also, don’t include book chapters – I know you didn’t go to the library and copy the pages, so don’t pretend you did! This is also a hint that you definitely shouldn’t include a whole book…
