Library:How to Write an Annotated Bibliography/Characteristics

From UBC Wiki


How do I write a good evaluative annotation?

  • be critical - Go beyond summarizing the article. The value for your reader lies in your assessment of each source.
  • be brief - Keep your annotation to a limit of 10 sentences and/or 150 words.
  • be honest - Don't pad your bibliography with works that you did not use and/or did not influence your research.
