Dot Image NUR 440 Final Project Milestone Three: Annotated Bibliography Guidelines and Rubric

Overview: In Milestone Two, you formulated your PICO(T) question. For Milestone Three, you will construct an annotated bibliography by using your PICO(T) to
guide your research. The annotated bibliography will assist you in gathering a detailed list of resources to use in your integrative review of the literature. An
annotated bibliography is an organized list of sources with an accompanying paragraph that describes, explains, and/or evaluates each entry in terms of quality,
authority, and relevance. The purpose of writing an annotated bibliography is to provide an overview of the research that has been published on a particular
topic.
Prompt: For this milestone, you will prepare an annotated bibliography with at least six citations. An annotation concisely paraphrases the main idea and
purpose of the selected resource. The annotation of a scholarly journal should identify the thesis (or research question, or hypothesis), the methods used, and its
discussion or conclusions. Remember that identifying the purpose is a different task than listing the resource’s contents. To be more precise, the annotation
should state why the contents are there. While constructing your annotations, be sure to include the following critical elements:
? Restate argument or thesis, methods, and conclusions (1–2 sentences)
? Evaluate/critique resource (1–2 sentences)
? Make connection to PICO(T) question (1–2 sentences)
Guidelines for Submission: Your annotated bibliography must be submitted as a 4–6 page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New
Roman font, one-inch margins, and six sources cited in APA format. Your chosen sources must be recent (within the last five years), peer-reviewed, scholarly
journal articles, and should appear in alphabetical order.
