Using the Annotated Bibliography format provide a detailed review of six qualitative articles. As you review articles with the focus of your research question you may need to select alternative studies to align with your completed work. The selection of articles is dependent on the focus you choose for your discussion. If the articles do not meet the requirements needed to support your discussion, search and replace articles as needed. Link the areas of focus and indicators to the theory. Keep in mind the theoretical or conceptual framework your have selected. The articles may use a different theory than the one you have chosen for previous papers. Following the Prospectus description for the Purpose of the Study in the Doctoral Project Manual, use the criteria and information from previous activities to draft your Purpose of the Study. Use your Research Question as your focus for the discussion. Follow with the 6 studies in the annotated bibliography format.
Submit paper of your discussion using points of emphasis above. 6 to 7 pages.
On a separate document- Labeled Assignment 17
Submit Qualitative Studies Paper:
Write a 3-5 page paper using four of the six research articles using one of the charts designed during the class. Refine the chart as needed to reflect the focus of your paper and new qualitative articles. Include charts, tables, and graphs as an appendix at the end of the paper.
The main purpose for this activity is to present an issue via the exploration of clear factors and applicable theory as they relate to your research interest. This academic discourse will allow you to use your critical thinking skills to analyze the different factors and then draw conclusions based on the evidence you present.
Prepare a 3-5 page qualitative studies paper your specific topic of interest. Assert your research question and applicable theory. Then present your Purpose of the Study. Use the following outline: Provide an introduction (include research question, applicable theory, and Purpose of the Study. Follow with the presentation of the four qualitative studies using the Annotated Bibliography format. Provide a discussion of the two perspectives regarding the selected predominate factor and link to the applicable theory based on the articles you presented. Finally, draw conclusions based on what you have presented. Again, include one of the graphs, tables, or charts to reflect relationship of the factors you have identified to the theory and how they are important. Include the chart or table as an appendix to your paper. Your discussion does not include the cover page, references, or appendices.

SCHOOL OF BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES Annotated Bibliography An annotated bibliography provides an overview of the evidence selected for a specific topic. The selected sources provides support for the focus you have determined as essential for your topic. A critical review of each source is completed to provide a foundation for a discussion. The format for an annotated bibliography includes the reference information followed by a paragraph or more of discussion. You can modify the criteria included in the annotated bibliography based on the needs of your study. You can organize the annotated bibliography a number of ways: by theme, chronologically to demonstrate how the research has changed or advanced over the years, and by conceptual or theoretical framework. Initially, you will want to arrange in alphabetical order. You may want to keep a separate list of just the references at the end to avoid reviewing that same article twice. You may decide to use the article later and can locate the source much quicker. You can then begin to organize by theme or other category as they emerge. Use headings to identify the key groups of literature. You may want to write a paragraph description for each area to formalize your intent. This will help keep your searches on topic. Note: You may want to create a folder on your computer to store the pdf of each article for future reference. Formatting Use APA formatting for the reference information. This will facilitate proper citing of sources and completion of the reference list. You will present the reference followed by a critical and informative review of your source. There are various templates available online for an Annotated Bibliography. You can modify the criteria presented based on the needs of your study. You may include but are not limited to the following: APA reference aim or focus of the study identify the stakeholders or audience for the study when and where the study was conducted criteria and conceptual framework for the study research methods, as well, as strengths, weaknesses, and limitations highlight findings and important implications for practice or research compare to other studies link or relate to your study Sample Entry (1) Author, A.
