The Annotated Bibliography is designed to assist you with your Research Paper research, by selecting and reviewing 3 scholarly journal articles, as well as to practice using proper in-text citations. It is recommended that you read and review the Research Paper Outline and Research Paper Instructions before completing this assignment. The Annotated Bibliography is the first building block of your Research Paper.
Using the Jerry Falwell Library, you will select 3 full-text, scholarly (peer-reviewed) journal articles that directly relate to 1 or more of the topics listed below and that have been published in the last 7 years. Save each selected article as a PDF file. If you need assistance finding scholarly journal articles, click here to learn how to navigate through the Jerry Falwell Library.

After reviewing each of the articles that you have selected and saved, you will then create a 300–500 word review (with in-text citations) of each article. The review portion of the assignment will give a general synopsis of each article that you reviewed and must note which portion of personality that the article is related to. This assignment does not need to include a title page, abstract page, or reference page; however, each reference must be listed in current APA format at the beginning of each summary. Each article must be cited using current APA format within your review of that particular article.
You must paraphrase; do not include any direct quotes. Proper use of in-text citations is imperative. If you do not include any in-text citations in this assignment, you will receive a zero. You are encouraged to read and review the chapter on in-text citations in your APA manual. Do not cite other sources outside of the article that you are reviewing.
You will submit 4 documents total in your submission: the 3 PDF documents that you saved (1 for each article) and your Annotated Bibliography submitted as a Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) file.
A grading rubric is provided to ensure you follow the assignment expectations.
Research Paper Instructions
The Research Paper will discuss 6 major ideas that make up the basics of personality theory as well as include a section on biblical integration. You must follow the outline given in Module/Week 5 to structure your paper; it is important that you do not stray from the outline.
It is imperative that your Research Paper include scholarly research and not your opinion. Your paper is a presentation of research regarding each of the required headings. Your paper must use 3rd person writing instead of 1st person (I, my, we) or second person (you) language. The Research Paper must include 8–10 pages of text (not including the title, abstract, or reference pages).
The Research Paper requires the use of at least 10 scholarly references (books and journal articles). At least 6 of these references must be scholarly journal articles. Do not use dictionaries, encyclopedias, websites, book reviews, or your textbook as references in your paper. You must use the Bible, but it does not count toward the 10 scholarly references.
Be sure to follow current APA formatting per the current APA manual. You must include in-text citations as well as a reference page within your paper. Paraphrasing with citations is strongly preferred over direct quotes. If you do not include any in-text citations in this assignment, you will receive a zero.
You do not need to submit the PDFs used as references for this assignment; however, the Research Paper must be submitted as a Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) document. Be sure to review the grading rubric before beginning your paper.
Please see the new attachment. It is a copy of what the outline sample should look like. Looks like you just need to add a reference page and abstract.
