Family Nurse Practitioner: Annotated Bibliography

Best Practices for Writing Annotated Bibliographies

  • Once you have your reference list created, you need to create the annotations.
  • Read each article carefully. Take notes. Notes will be helpful when writing your annotated bibliography annotations.
  • Decide what articles are the best. Look at how often authors are cited in other articles. Choose similar articles on a focused topic.
  • Be sure you don't summarize the article in your annotation. Instead, you should:
    • Explain why the source is relevant to your topic
    • Explain how you found the article
    • Explain how the evidence supports your topic or research question
    • Use specific examples of evidence from the articles
