Annotations are to be developed and presented for a minimum of 7 scholarly articles (i.e. generally in the last 3-5 years, although classic articles may be used). From a variety of peer reviewed/referred scholarly/professional journals. References must be submitted using APA formatting. Each Annotated Bibliography should be a minimum of 1 page in length and include the following information:

A summary of the study in the scholarly article (i.e. what was the research question).

A critical analysis of a minimum of one paragraph detailing the merits of the article to include the strengths and limitations.

A statement related to the relevance of the article in relation to Emergency Management and/or Homeland Security.

Some questions to consider when writing your Annotated Bibliography:

· ?? Was the research question well framed and significant?

· ?? How well was the research related to the existing body of knowledge?

· ?? Did the article make an original contribution to the existing body of knowledge?

· ?? Was the theoretical framework for the study adequate and appropriate?

· ?? Has the researcher communicated clearly and fully?

· ?? Was the research method appropriate?

· ?? Is there a better way to find answers to the research question?
