Here’s something about communication that made you decide to major or minor or specialize in it. This is your opportunity to see what the published research has to say about your area of interest within communication.
For this assignment, you’ll review of the literature and complete an annotated bibliography of three sources – that is, three research articles – published since 2000 in scholarly journals on a question of interest to you in communication.
Use the handout entitled Is Your Journal Scholarly? (ATTACHED) to determine whether a given periodical is a scholarly journal. Picking the question Think of the topic as a question about some aspect of communication that you would like answered. So start by asking yourself what aspects of communication or communication situations you find particularly problematic or interesting.
Then frame that as a focused, specific question. You will use this question and the articles you use here to complete Part 2 of your Final Paper. Preparing the annotated bibliography • Prepare the annotations following the instructions for an annotated bibliography in the Annotated Bibliography handout and the format of the sample annotated bibliography you were given.
• Write extended abstracts for each entry of 100-200 words each. The extended abstract for each entry should contain the information called for on the right-hand side of Annotated Bibliography handout.
• The references for the articles should be done in APA Style as described on the APA Style Quick Reference website.
• Include a cover page with your name and the heading of your paper. Your finished product should be grammatically correct, free of spelling and punctuation errors. It should also be double spaced, with margins of 1″ all around and a font no larger than 12. Things to avoid
• Do not choose as one of your articles a convention paper (the terms EBSCO most commonly uses for convention papers are “conference paper” and “conference proceedings.”)
• Do not choose as one of your articles a book review or editor’s introduction.
• Do not choose as one of your articles an abstract of another article, such as those appearing in Communication Abstracts.
• Do not use the abstract for an article that is provided in the article itself or by a database.
• Do not use the reference for an articiqule provided by the database.SHOW LESS
